Last night, at the benefit for Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo’s nunnery in India at Tibet House, I shook Gloria Steinem’s hand and said, “Thank you for all that you’ve done for us, and for me,” and she smiled and said, simply, “You’re welcome.”

I never knew I’d have a chance to express my gratitude to someone so important in my—our—life. It was like thanking my mother.
