获得“新闻勇气奖”对我意味着什么?

今年4月,我收到国际妇女传媒基金会的邮件,通知将授予我2010年的“新闻勇气奖”。这是国际上一项重要的奖项,正如来信中写到:“每一年基金会都会给世界上三名杰出的女性记者发奖,以表彰她们在困难和危险情况下,忠于职守的非凡毅力和决心。……如同你一样,得到这个奖项的勇敢女性们,往往冒着生命和事业的危险来捍卫自由、民主和人权。”而在举行颁奖仪式之际,我将获奖致辞公布于此:
感谢国际妇女传媒基金会授予我“新闻勇气奖”。因为中国政府不给我护照,我无法前来接受这光荣的奖项,但我的心灵是封锁不住的,此刻正与你们在一起,感受来自你们的温暖和鼓励。

一位从玉树回来的北京记者对我说,起先还是很感动喇嘛在救援中的付出,但后来发现这些喇嘛也很有心机,他们并不信任政府,比如每个来救援的寺院,几乎都安排有僧人拍照和摄像。
这反倒让我很欣慰。我们的僧侣们终于知道以现代方式留下见证了。这既是为自己作证,也是为这一时刻作证。今天的僧侣已不再是旧时代的传统僧侣,用时髦的话来描述,他们“与时俱进”,也善于使用现代科技了。
