This video, taken Thursday, Feb. 17, on Highway A1A, begins with words of remembrance by Wangchuk Darjee, a former member of the Tibetan Parliament and friend of Jigme Norbu, who was killed by an SUV Feb. 14.

After Darjee's words, he leads a prayer written by the Dalai Lama.

Next, Walk for Tibet organizer Donna Kim-Brand describes Norbu's passion for the cause.

Finally, Jamie DeFrates, who met Darjee and Kim-Brand at a restaurant the night of the tragedy, sings a song he composed for the occasion.
