I just don't understand our naiveté as Australians. Every day there are items in the news telling us that someone was targeted overseas because they were Australian; that young people are leaving our shores and becoming cannon fodder and pawns in deadly, evil games that someone else orchestrates; but what do we think will happen when we become part of those conflicts, when we participate in the violence? When do we begin to understand that violence begets violence; revenge begets revenge! So, as we go off to do it again, perhaps all decision makers should be issued with the works of Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Aung San Suu Kyi & the Dalai Lama!
THE MANY INTANGIBLE ACHIEVEMENTS OF GOVERNOR MU’AZU BABANGIDA ALIYU By Musa Suleiman - Globally, celebrated leaders are not remembered because of the number of structures or edifices that they have constructed. History remembered them those who impacted on humanity based on issues that are of global interest. These people; Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Sir Ahmadu Bello, Tafawa Balewa, Kwame Nkrumah and a host of others, became reference points in history because of the enduring, mostly intangible legacies they left behind for us today. Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello may have constructed and established institutions, built houses and constructed roads. But many years down the line, these infrastructures are either dilapidated, abandoned, partially or completely non- existent. Yet, they remain reference point to this generation and beyond because they knew that the only way to invest in the future was to give their people qualitative and functiona ...

HAPPY NEW MONTH GEEzzz! I was reading this book that set my curiosity high on what am about to talk about. First, I did not take the issue serious but the more I kept reading,the more confused I became! Suddenly,something crept in and thus,I landed on this and reasoned to bring it out in the open for debate. The issue here centered on MARIJUANA! Is this where some of these great men like Shaka Zulu,Haile Sellassie,Kwame Nkrumah,Marcus Garvey,Mahatma Gandhi,Elvis Presley,Bob Marley,Martin Luther King, Fela Kuti got their guts and inspirations,doing all they do in their separate vocabulary and world?or is it that,it form a greater force behind their legacies? Before you twist it to suit your opinion,have it in your mind that, the facts used here did not originate from me but was stumbled upon... Now that it has been cleared ,I still want to know if what Holy book said on " Adam and Eve and the " Forbidden Fruit".. . Has any connection? does it in any where had something to do with this strange plant call .. ...
“A lot of people are waiting for Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi to come back ― but they are gone. We are it. It is up to us. It is up to you.” ― Marian Wright Edelman
I recently had an opportunity to visit with Dr. Maya Angelou who graciously welcomed me to her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Even though she is now 86 years of age, she is sharp as a tack and her wit and intellect remain very apparent. Like myself, she is concerned about the direction of our nation and the fact that we seem to be willing to abandon many of the godly principles that have guided us in the past. I asked her what it was like to be such a creative person and in her typical modest fashion she said I was the last onewho should be asking such a question. We chatted about some of our common friends and I was thrilled to have an opportunity to walk around her magnificent property and see the many statues of well-known individuals such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Duke Ellington and a host of other luminaries. It was an unforgettable experience and I thank God for blessing us in the United States and throughout the world with the gift of Dr. Maya Angelou. Be sure to read this ...

The men, that have inspired me to be young man that I'm now and the man that I am still destined to be are; God, My Dad, My Granddads (John & Peter), Nigel Tween, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., T.D. Jakes, Billy Graham, Abraham Lincoln, Sidney Poitier and Mahatma Gandhi. O:) (y) B-)
PLEASE COME AND SEE SEV BRUYN'S ORATORIO - TEACHERS OF NORWAY, TOMORROW - WEDNESDAY APRIL 9, 2014, 7:00 PM, PLACE: TRINITY CHAPEL, NEWTON BC CAMPUS, 825 CENTRE STREET! This is a fascinating true story of the resistance against the Nazis by the Teachers of Norway. It is a perfect story of the strength of non-violent resistance. Nonviolent Action: The Teachers of Norway A panel discussion will be held on nonviolent action against oppressors around the world. An oratorio will be sung about how 10, 000 teachers in Norway stopped Hitler (with nonviolent action) from putting Nazi textbooks in their schools. A discussion follows about how effective nonviolent action has begun to take place globally in the last century. Such action includes Mahatma Gandhi in India, Tagawa in Japan, Bishop Oscar Romero in El Salvador, Danilo Dolci in Sicily, Tich Nhat Hanh in Vietnam, Mairead Corrigan in Ireland, A.J. Muste, Dorothy Day, Cesar Chavez, Martin Luther King in the United States as well as many other movements based on ...
Today I was told: "How can I help you if I cannot help myself?" after I did so much for that person. Well, you can by forcing yourself to put yourself together for people in need of a helping hand. This allows you to do the impossible, enabling you to see the strength you never thought you had, giving you hope to get out of the worst times. All the legends in the world who made our world a better place had problems and yet managed to save our world and make it easier to live life. Best examples: Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Mikhail Gorbachev, William Wilberforce, Nelson Mandela,Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Thomas Jefferson, and lets not forget Helen Keller - despite her disability of both deafness and blindness, she learned to read and write, and helped improve the welfare of deaf people. Hence, selfishness is something we shouldn't expose to the world whereby people struggled and died for us to learn how to HELP EACH OTHER WHEN IN NEED! Think about it, if 2 people . ...
3. Martin Luther King Jr. – THE DREAMER OF BLACK Civil Rights Born in 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia Martin Luther King Jr. is considered to be the greatest African-American leader of all times and one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century. He was a fighter, activist and revolutionary in the movement for Civil Rights for the American blacks. He was part of the clergy of the Ebeneezer Baptist Church and spent most of his life fighting for the rights of his fellow brothers in a non-violent way inspired by Mahatma Gandhi. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his fight for equality in a non-violent way and is greatly remembered for his famous ‘I have dream’ speech which has inspired generations of leaders after him. Martin Luther King, Jr., (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968) was born Michael Luther King, Jr., but later had his name changed to Martin. His grandfather began the family's long tenure as pastors of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, serving from 1914 to 1931; his father has served fro ...
Throughout written history, many sovereign countries have been commandeered by an elite group of private financial bankers who have long ago severed themselves from the reality of Earth. These men are the cause for nearly every major tragedy in written history... the genocide of European Druids, the genocide of Native Americans, the genocide of Jewish mysticism, the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest, the murder of nearly all past awakened souls... Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Princess Diana Frances, and more... All of these beings were sacrificed by the financial elite. To understand how we got here, we must look at written history and attempt to discern the truth within ourself. In the spot light: America Civil War of 1861-1865 District of Columbia Organization Act of 1871 Federal Reserve Act of 1913 As of 1871 the United States of America transformed into a corporation.

"Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a leader who, like Mahatma Gandhi before him, and Nelson Mandela after him, showed us the way from weakness and division to strength in unity. He challenged and inspired us to reach deeper within ourselves, despite ourselves, for our best, which sometimes is, simply, better than yesterday. His power endures because it's rooted in the courage to hold hope and faith in each others potential: 'knowing' we can do it... we can be better every day, each in our own way." Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Leadership Lessons:
Today's Daily Word is dedicated to building your legacy! A legacy is something that is received from someone who has died! The dictionary says it can be property or money but we all know that in most cases those leave very little value! When we speak of legacy, we speak of what has been done in a lifetime that lives on past that person's death! When you think of Martin Luther King and his dream of equality and the mark he left in the world, or when you think of Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, and as of recent, Nelson Mandela... These are all souls who were selfless and lived a life of service and vowed to leave the world better than how they found it! When you think about your life. What legacy will you leave? When it is all said and done, how will you be remembered? Are you going to continue to only think about yourself and live a life that will be over after the obituary? Or are you going to maximize your God-given talents to leave a mark in the world that will never be forgotten? I don't care ...
January 19: “Claiming Freedom” (Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday) Rev. Jennifer Brooks The 20th century was notable for the “self-determination” movements that claimed freedom in India, led by Mahatma Gandhi; in South Africa, led by Nelson Mandela; in the Czech Republic, led by Václav Havel; and in the United States, led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. What makes people willing to risk claiming freedom? How do we stand in solidarity with all people everywhere who claim freedom for themselves and their children?
The Illuminati Bloodlines and Most Powerful Families in the World are responsible for the sacrifice of Princess Diana, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lennon, John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Mahatma Gandhi, Bob Marley, Bruce Lee, Muammar Gaddafi, and many other Anti-Tyranny Truth Speakers and Spreaders of Peace. Dr. Ron Paul, Dr. LA Marzulli, Dr. Roger Lier, and many others worldwide are speaking much TRUTH. Princess Diana may have been pregnant when she was assassinated and she knew she was going to be murdered in a car accident as she wrote in a letter. Prince Diana was part of the Bloodline of King David and YAHUSHA. Prince William will be an Anti-Christ possessed leader of the New World Order who will appear as a "Savior" in 2015 using Blue Beam Technology for aliens to tell the world he is YAHUSHA when he is 33 and he will offer the plagued and famine stricken world citing he is from the Bloodline of Christ from Princess Diana although he was cloned in a test tube to look like Shroud of Turin.

Madiba once said that the first thing he would do after reaching heaven's gates would be to look for the first ANC office and sign up as a member. That is indeed what he has done. He now rests in the company of his comrades Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Oliver and Adelaide Tambo, Walter and Albertina Sisulu, Dullah Omar, Kader Asmal, Albert Luthuli, Joe Slovo, Steve Biko, John Dube, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, Ahmed Ben Bella, Ruth First, Bram Fischer, Beyers Naude, Leopold Sedar Senghor, Amilcar Cabral, Agostinho Neto, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Jomo Kenyatta, Kwame Nkrumah, Louis Rwagasore, Eriya Kategaya, Samora Machel, and John Garang. He was recieved by the young lions Fred Rwigyema, Noble Mayombo, Chris Hani and Thomas Sankara and today he no doubt spent the day with John Garang to reflect on the grave situation that seems to be unfolding in Juba.
This is Saturday's Advent Devotional - written by Floyd Hale, a member of Sandy Springs Christian Church. Isaiah 11:1-9 Eagerly Awaiting the Prince of Peace! Or Is He Awaiting Us? During this frequently hectic advent season, we eagerly await the Prince of Peace. But from where does peace come? How does it grow? How and where does it spread? The Roman Empire was not able to bring lasting security or peace. Pax Romana was a myth, especially for those who were occupied and oppressed and eventually for the occupier and the oppressor. Nor has security or peace come from the world's most sophisticated, expensive, and extensive military-industrial complex or from the most broadly and well-armed citizens ever. Have we not learned that weapons cannot ensure security, much less peace? Isaiah 11:1-9 may help us answer those important questions. Isaiah says that peace comes from a tender shoot. Some tried to tell Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela that a tender shoot could not exert a ...

Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mwl Julius K Nyerere, Mother Theresa and Nelson Mandela never lived for paycheck, they never struggled to accumulate wealth yet they lived and did not die poor. Their names are household names worldwide. They will always be remembered for as long as this world shall live! Not because of their wealth, not because they were the richest or most educated BUT rather because THEY ALL WORKED FOR HUMANITY!! They all spent their lives making our world better... We are all better off because of their lifetime commitment to HUMANITY!!! Rest in Peace Madiba...Your legacy will forever live!!
To me, Mandela's life is truly epic. It’s a word that gets tossed about easily these days, but when I say epic, I really mean it. The Oxford English Dictionary defines it: NOUN: a long poem, typically one derived from ancient oral tradition, narrating the deeds and adventures of heroic or legendary figures or the history of a nation; a long film, book, or other work portraying heroic deeds and adventures or covering an extended period of time. ADJECTIVE: of, relating to, or characteristic of an epic or epics; heroic or grand in scale or character; INFORMAL: particularly impressive or remarkable. I will go further and say that Mandela's story is of a character with such a world-wide recognition and impact that if the Bible were written today, I would readily substitute the Book of Moses with The Book of Mandela. How often do we see leadership like that in our lifetime? He was a great leader of his people and inspired and changed the world much in the way that Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. an .. ...
Our solitary boast “THE ICONIC spiritual leaders of our time took decades of struggle and growth before they were formed into the universally recognized symbols that we know and love”, writes Ambassador Akbar Ahmed. He chairs Islamic Studies at American University in Washington DC. “Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela are universally recognized examples.” the jump:
Nelson M was the last of the three Ms ( other two being Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King) who liberated mankind from the clutches of colour slavery from the world.World will remain indebted to him for ever.
MANDELA, MANDELA, THE GREAT Nelson Mandela IS DEAD. Other heroes went before him like Steve Biko. I am certain they will converse in Heaven about accomplishing their mission on earth. Mandela, the unknown prophet of God. Just like his counter part Martin Luther King. Mandela surpassed all Africans great heroes like Patrice Lumumba, Kwame Nkruma, Sekou Toure, Jomo Kenyetta, William V.S. Tubman, Houpheot Boigny, Haile Selassie, Thomas Sankara etc. He is now in the unique league of the World Greatest, heroes, Champions and Leaders; Mother Theresa,Harriet Tubman, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Mahatma Gandhi, Mao Tse-tung,Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, and Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev. We could also put him in the league with great heroes and warriors like Julius Caesar,Napoleon Bonaparte and King James of England. I won't hesitate to include him in the class of Biblical Heroes an leaders such Abraham, Moses, Joshua, especially Joseph, Cleopatra, Esther, David, Mose ...
In these days following Nelson Mandela's death many will try to rewrite his history or better yet reshape it. It's not the first time it has happened nor will it be the last when it comes to our leaders, our heroes, our icons. It has been done to Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, Marcus Garvey, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Leonard Peltier, even Mother Teresa. They will label Mandela a communist & a terrorist because he refused to denounce controversial leaders like Fidel Castro or Moammar Gaddafi or once aligned with the armed wing of the ANC that advocated violence to overthrow the apartheid regime of South Africa. Any student of history knows that sometimes in order to force change like the legislated regulation of racial segregation (APARTHEID) in South Africa there's the possibility for violence. How is Mandela any different than those who fought in the American Civil War like John Jacob Astor, Ulysses S. Grant or William Sherman? Why isn't history labelling them terrorists? Nelson Mandela . ...

It never seems to amaze me how an effective ad campaign can whitewash the worst people. Cases in point are those of Menachem Begin, who was celebrated as Prime Minister of Israel and the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize (along with that unrepentant Nazi sympathizer Anwar Sadat).and as the leader of the Irgun, committed acts of terrorism including the bombing of the King David Hotel. Today we have the whole world worshipping at the memory of Nelson Mandela, who as a leader of ANC engaged in acts of terrorism. These men are far removed from the effective non-violent Civil Rights triumphs of Martin Luther King, or Mahatma Gandhi. But who knows, with time and a good media blitz, even Uncle Joe Stalin's memory can be rehabilitated.

Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95 at his home in Johannesburg , announced on the evening of Thursday, December 5th South African President Jacob Zuma, live on public television. " Our dear Madiba 's funeral will state," he said, announcing that the flags are at half-mast from Friday and until the funeral . He said he was "neither a saint nor a prophet." He deplored that the present as "a sort of demi-god ." He insisted on his "mistakes" , his " shortcomings" , his " impatience ". Until the end, while he may be celebrated around the world , while powerful states and wove her laurels, he stood statues him décernaient palms and rewards, while just over one gave his name to thousands of schools , universities, streets, squares, parks and various institutions to the end he wanted "a man like any other, a sinner who is trying to improve " .It has been compared , and we identify more now that he is dead, Mahatma Gandhi, the Dalai Lama , Martin Luther King.

Indians have Mahatma Gandhi, Americans have Martin Luther King, JFK.Africans and the world have Nelson Madiba Mandela...
About 50 years ago, Martin Luther King delivered a historic speech, "I have a dream..." Eventually, America created history by electing their 1st Agro-American President. What is very significant is that this dream was not dreamt during the best of times, but during the worst of times, when the blacks didn't even have the voting rights. "In 1999, when basic communication channels were stil pathetic in India, Dhirubhai Ambani dreamt of dat a common man wil hav access to affordable means of information & communications." With every product, service & commodity becoming expensive, Ratan Tata dreamt of a 1 Lakh- rupee Car & "Nano" had already made its way. Mahatma Gandhi dreamt of a free India, when his country was enslaved for over 300 years. At a time when India could not even build world-class aircrafts, APJ Abdul Kalam, the missile-man of India, dreamt his dreams, and today, "Space to moon" belong to India. Dream we must, that all of us know. What is significant is that all great dreamers processed great ...
40 THOUGHTS ON TRUTH “When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.” ― Mahatma Gandhi “The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.” ― Jim Morrison “There are no facts, only interpretations.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche “The truth will set you free, but first it will *** you off.” ― Gloria Steinem “I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?” ― Jo ...
“The ’60s were a leap in human consciousness. Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, Mother Teresa, they led a revolution of conscience. The Beatles, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix created revolution and evolution themes. The music was like Dalí, with many colors and revolutionary ways. The youth of today must go there to find themselves.”
Sharing a message sent to me by Syed Mohammed Abbas Kazmi: Sir If you want to fight against oppression you have to look up to the Greatest Tyrant on Earth. & then look up to the Most fearless person who stood up against this tyrant & his Oppression ..

Rather, I have left to restore the teachings of my grandfather Muhammad… And I only desire to spread good values and prevent evil… ...
This week, for more than a billion people, the world as they know it effectively comes to an end. The second Test match between India and the West Indies ...will be the last international appearance of one Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar," a Wall Street Journal article titled 'Farewell to Cricket's Little Master' said. As the moment of his (Tendulkar's) departure looms, the country is in the fevered throes of one last, mammoth celebration, but also on the un-self-conscious brink of mourning," the NYT op-ed piece titled 'Where the Gods Live On ... and On' said. The NYT op-ed said it would be "entirely accurate" to describe Tendulkar as the most revered contemporary Indian, "or even, with only a pinch of hyperbole, the most revered Indian since Mahatma Gandhi held the nation in thrall. Suspend your disbelief and think of him as a cross between Babe Ruth and Martin Luther King." "His retirement removes a constant from cricket-the game's purest source of technically perfect batting pleasure, a source none of us reall ...
Be the change you want to see in the world - Mahatma Gandhi. The man dies in him who keeps silent in the face of tyranny - Wole Soyinka. Freedom is not freely given by the oppressors, it is demanded by the oppressed - Martin Luther King, Jr. Do you agree with these sayings?
From Rev. Carol's sermon last Sunday: " 'For all the saints who from their labors rest.we feebly struggle, they in glory shine. Yet all are one in thee for all are thine. Alleluia. Alleluia!' This hymn sums up All Saints' Day. All of us who seek do do the will of God are saints, past, present, and future. Saints are not just the big names - St. Paul, or St. Stephen, or even more current people like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Teresa. All of us ordinary folks are saints as well because we are made in the image of God and filled with God's Holy Spirit. We become one with Christ as Christ becomes one with us. That is what makes us saints - who we belong to and whose we are."
If great influential people of the past were still alive who made a difference in this world like Susan B. Anthony, Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman, Charles Dickens, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Walt Disney, Michael Jackson, Jim Henson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez, L. Frank Baum, Mark Twain, Oscar Schindler, Alex Haley, Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and anyone else you can think of that is influential in our culture. I would shake all these people's hands for inspiring me to be the man I am today. As for the people like the founder of the KKK, Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Joesph Stalin. Um, Let's just say in the kindest way possible we wouldn't see eye to eye on things and I wouldn't ask them over for dinner anytime soon!
I woke up to news that my mother needs a bone scan and has a lesion on her pancreas. We (my mother and I) both know that life throws curve balls all the time and that living one day at a time is no silly saying. It doesn't make the news any less scary; nor does it take the sting out of the news that my sister's ability to write, read, and walk are regressing rather than progressing - a possible effect of deep, severe internal brain injury. It doesn't change the fact that our government is digging us into an economic grave or that it stokes the flames of misery and warfare across the world - and in the Middle East, in particular. I try to remember Keats' poetry, and Mozart's music, and Botticelli's Angels, and the singing voice of Monserrat Caballet (opera) or of the duet from Bizet's The Pearl Fishers, or the uplifting words of Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, and the wisdom of Noam Chomsky; the sweet, soft folksongs of Joan Baez and her telling me to have courage when I felt I was sinking into shadows ...
QUOTES: "Human beings are chimpanzees who get crazy drunk on power." - Kurt Vonnegut "What do I think of Western civilization? I think it would be a very good idea." - Mahatma Gandhi "The first human who hurled an insult instead of a stone was the founder of civilization." - Sigmund Freud "There are many humorous things in the world; among them, the white man's notion that he is less savage than the other savages." - Mark Twain "Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal. - Martin Luther King, Jr. "There is no greater tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of the law and in the name of justice." - Montesquieu, The Spirit of the Laws "Small men command the letter of the law. Great men serve its spirit. For the spirit of the law is justice... and justice is the spirit of God." - J.C.

"To sin by silence, when they should protest, makes cowards of men." — Ella Wheeler Wilcox "Silence becomes cowardice when occasion demands speaking out the whole truth and acting accordingly." — Mahatma Gandhi "There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest." — Elie Wiesel "We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." — Elie Wiesel "Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves." — Henry David Thoreau “One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.” ― Martin Luther King Jr. “An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.” ― Martin Luther King Jr. “No matter that patriotism is too often t ...
Happy Independence Day! There is a moving World War II story about a conscientious objector who received the Congressional Medal of Honor. It seems that the soldier, who served as a medic in the Pacific theatre, saved dozens of his wounded comrades who were pinned down by enemy fire. He risked his life over and over in spite of being wounded himself. Afterwards, his company commander asked the basis of his heroism. The conscientious objector answered, "My religious convictions do not permit me to kill, but they do permit me to die." Sometimes we view non-violent people as cowards when nothing could be further from the truth. Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, both pacifists, were certainly not sissies. Jesus and Buddha were not wimps. Sometimes it takes more strength to risk harm without giving injury than it does to strike back.
US President Barack Obama today donned a teacher's hat to tell his two young daughters how Mahatma Gandhi's 'Satyagraha' had influenced American Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King to fight injustice.

But as I study biographies and stories of great men and women of achievements, almost all of them started out as being reluctant. They had doubts. They had insecurities. They were uncomfortable with uncertainties. But over time, their reluctance gives way to resolve. Then they pour their heart, mind and soul towards the pursuit of a higher cause and succeed. Such are men and women like Nelson Mandela,Elen Johnso Sallif, Ernest Bai Koroma, Obama, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln and William Wilberforce. They started out reluctant at first. But they saw the opportunity. They felt the urgency of the moment. They real . ...
Socrates taught morality to the youth across the streets of Greece, and changed their lives for the better. But the authorities persecuted him for that. Jesus Christ came, he perfomed miracles, changed lives, preached the good news, but the authorities killed him. Mahatma Gandhi spoke wisdom to his people, encouraged them, and helped India gain its independence, but he was killed too. Martin Luther King, fought for black people's rights in america, he lead the human rights movement and inspired racial love. But he too, was killed, possibly by the authorities. Stephen Bantu Biko, enlightened his fellow blacks, warned them against the mental slavery they were about to undergo. But the authorities killed him. Almost every intellectual revolutionary in history was killed by the authorities that gorvened him. But look, their words still echo through the endless passages of time..
The Quit India speech is a speech made by Mahatma Gandhi on August 8, 1942, on the eve of the Quit India movement. He called for determined, but passive resistance that signified the certitude that Gandhi foresaw for the movement is best described by his call to Do or Die. His speech was issued at the Gowalia Tank Maidan in Bombay (now Mumbai), since renamed August Kranti Maidan (August Revolution Ground). However, almost the entire Congress leadership, and not merely at the national level, was put into confinement less than twenty-four hours after Gandhi's speech, and the greater number of the Congress leaders were to spend the rest of the war in jail. Many years later, Martin Luther King, Jr., would mimic Gandhi in his "I Have A Dream" speech that promoted nonviolence and equality of races.[citation needed] Gandhi made this speech to help India gain Independence.
How Turks Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love Tear Gas History has prominent examples that demonstrate the power of non-violent resistance against government repression. The movements led by Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, and others like them come to mind. The non-violent protests that are now in their third week in cities across Turkey add a rare ingredient to the mix: humor. The Turks are in the process of crafting an unlikely historical story that exemplifies how the power of humor and innovation can be effectively harnessed against government repression and abuse. Here is a five-step guide to how Turks stopped worrying and learned to love tear gas. 1. Turn insults into points of pride. When a defiant Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan described the protestors as "Capulcu" (pronounced "CHA-pul-dju" and roughly translated to "riffraff"), instead of taking it as an insult, the protestors embraced their newfound labels with pride. Overnight, the word morphed from an insult to a compliment. Tho ...

Here's to the Crazy Ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify and vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do...

Jesus Christ, Buddha, Dalai Lama, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr ALL great TEACHERS by different paths LEAD to the same TRUTH; LOVE.
A peep into my soul: Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Albert Einstein, John F. Kennedy, and even Jesus Christ himself became a little frustrated in their callings and quest to bring peace and understanding to the world; and while I am nowhere near their greatness or having their bullhorn, I too get a little frustrated in doing what I do. Which is normal. I am not looking for self aggrandizement or recognition, I am only a messenger. However, sometime's a little acknowledgement helps though and a simple "like" will do. For those who are and have been one of the loyal friends ( and that number is growing ) who do acknowledge and participate in remaking our world, thanks for your continued support. I have used the term recalcitrance in the past to describe that lack of acknowledgement because I've been doing this for a very long time and I get a lot of push back from ( many ) people who assert that they know more about racism than I or other Blacks know. They refuse to accept my/our lifelong experience's ...
Looking back over our rich history, there is a wealth of great leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Nelsen Mandela, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Sir Whinstone Churchill, Malcolm X, JFK, and Mother Teresa. None of these giants of history spent their lives dedicated to building iconic structures in the physical. Instead their lives continue to be a great inspiration to the generations that follow of what can be achieved when our lives are dedicated to the welfare of others. Some of these iconic figures changed an entire nation, others reshaped the world we live in, but the one common thread they share is their service to others. Big fancy buildings can be nice, but these buildings don’t change lives. Providing shelter for the homeless, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and visiting the sick and imprisoned. That’s where the power is. Don’t tell me you love others. Love is a verb. So show me! Everybody love everybody!
Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. both believed in the tactic of nonviolence. Because of their shared belief, it is often inaccurately assumed that they also shared the same end goal of integration. Gandhi, while nonviolent, did not believe in integration like King did. Gandhi believed in the expulsion of the white colonial powers and economic self determination for his people, much like Malcolm X and Fred Hampton. Mahatma Gandhi was an advocate of Black Power.
My Favorite Two Living Philosopher, Leader Humans are Ron Paul and Harry Palmer. My Favorite Two Deceased Philosopher, Leader Humans are Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. Who are your four?
On this Memorial Day let us honor the peacemakers that came before us. The nonviolent leaders that paved the way for others. Today I honor leaders like Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mahatma Gandhi.
About Us We are a group of like minded people coming from different walks of life who look forward to build a better world and civilization where cooperation drives humans not competition; where the spiritual values of love, compassion, sharing and non-possessiveness can be practiced freely and practically rather than just offering lip services to those ideals. We have been inspired by great thinkers like Jacque Fresco, Martin Luther King Jr., Rabindra Nath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Shri. Arbindo, The Mother, Paramhansa Yogananda, Nikola Tesla, J.C. Bose, Einstein, Buckminister Fuller, Alfie Kohn, Osho, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Baba A. Nagraj and many others who have dreamed of a better society and a better humanity. We believe that rather than getting attached to some particular idea, belief, person or philosophy and closing our mind to everything else we should collaborate or synthesise the greatness we find in each of them. We think its time to unite those important ideas and look at the bigger aspect of life ...
Though other categories of Nobel Prize have acceptability, Nobel Peace Prize is a highly controversial award. Though some genuine peace makers like Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi were awarded the Prize from time to time in order to maintain its acceptability, on most occasions this award was accorded to the people who implement westerners’ (especially American) agendas. The Nobel Peace Prize should be renamed as Nobel Political Prize because politics is the main consideration for selecting it s recipients. Mahatma Gandhi was nominated by the Nobel peace committee in 1937, 1938, 1939, 1947 and, finally, a few days before his death in January 1948, but he never won the Nobel Peace Prize. However, Henry Kissinger, one of the staunchest supporters of the atrocities committed on Vietnamese during Vietnam War and Bangladeshis during our great independence struggle, was awarded with Nobel Piece (not peace) prize. Similarly, Shimon Peres, the former Prime Minister of Is ...
Moses never got to the promised land...Martin Luther King never lived to see "his dream"...Mahatma Gandhi died too soon then. Raila has done more than he could ever do as a president.isnt silence the best ship home? Raila concede
Here is a man who is an epitome of loyalty and simplicity. The thing about the President’s critics is that they just cannot accept that someone with his simplicity can be their President. This is the Saul Complex. Saul could not accept the fact that somebody as simple as David could be favoured by God. And just like Saul threw the spear at David out of uncontrollable jealousy, these critics are out to throw any kind of spear to see which hits the target, hence all their lies about the President. Let me end by saying that the President is a simple man but simplicity is not naivety. If simplicity were to be naivety, then the world would not be where it is today because it is simple men like Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and Kwame Nkrumah, who have shaped the world that we live in by simplifying what others have complicated.
American Logo March 10, 2013 Volume II,Issue _ Richard III was king of England, and there he has the advantage over me. But he was a hunchback, and there I have the advantage over him. - - Mark Twain _ Unsung American Heroes ( Let us now, once again, sing about the unsung, the American heroes who we salute and celebrate. Why do we select Mahatma Gandhi? Two reasons. First, because the unsung part (he apparently had a tin ear), was that he had the true American spirit, the twin beliefs in cottage industry and selflessness. Second, he was nominated about a year ago by Glen Beck on Fox News. -Ed) Mohandas K. Gandhi When our selection committee heard that Glen Beck admired Mohandas K. Gandhi – that he doted on the dhoti - we began to think twice about the accuracy of history. Was Gandhi a Conservative, or at the very least a moderate capitalist?

Hey! I gotta talk about Martin Luther King, JR. 1929-1968, born in Atlanta, GA, and Malcolm X born 1925-1965. They both had a strategy and acted on it. Searching for confidence in segregated America. Dr King adopted the strategy of nonviolence from Mahatma Gandhi, a great leader of India. The strategy led to protesting courageously, and yet with dignity and Christian love. Malcolm X the activist and outspoken public voice of the Black Muslim Faith challenged the mainstream Civil Rights Movement and the nonviolent pursuit of intergration champion by Martin Luther King Jr. He urged his followers to defend themselves against white hostile behavior "by any means necessary. " Although different strategies,they both served others instead of living only for themselves. My favorite quote of Dr. King, is: To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing. My favorite quotes of Malcolm X is : 1. Stumbling is not falling. 2. If you have no critics you'll likely have no success.
Ok was philosophizing again and I have a question for you folks who read my missives, I was thinking of days gone by when dreams were not that hard to turn to reality, when people were different and kinder, God was all forgiving and love never died, life was just a great song and there was an exciting new world around each bend and that got me to thinking about days WAY gone by some even before my time and some names popped into my head and here is the question what do the following people and YOU and I all have in common; Elvis Presley, J.F.K., R.F.K., Martin Luther King, Wyatt Earp, Shakespeare, Tennessee Williams, Tennessee Ernie Ford, all four Beatles, Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, John Wayne, Sharon Tate, Frank Sinatra, Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Doc Holiday, Madonna, J.

Think of the far-reaching consequences set in motion by men and women who raised their standards and acted in accordance with them, deciding they would tolerate no less. History chronicles the inspiring examples of people like Leonardo da Vinci, Abraham Lincoln, Helen Keller, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Albeit Einstein, Cesar Chavez, Soichiro Honda, and many others who took the magnificently powerful step of raising their standards. The same power that wasavailable to them is available to you, if you have the courage to claim it. Changing an organization, a company, a country—or a world—begins with the simple step of changing yourself. vous dit tony
From the early days of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Martin Luther King, Jr. referred to India’s Mahatma Gandhi as ‘‘the guiding light of our technique of nonviolent social change’’ (Papers 5:231). Following the success of the boycott in 1956, King contemplated traveling to India to deepen his underst...
Martin Luther King spoke to a massive football stadium crowd to me and my fellow students at Sacramento State in the fall of 1967. King's speech that day articulated sharply & clearly that the issue of injustice is rooted in a rigged economic system. Six months later, King was gunned down. King's power flowed from his powerful rooted commitment to Non-Violent Civil Disobedience. Martin Luther King did his homework. In the 1950's he studied in India with Mahatma Gandhi. He searched inside himself, through prayer and meditation for the most powerful pathway to justice. Martin Luther King discovered that path: Non-Violent Civil Disobedience. Martin Luther King knew that violence and retribution are cheap.and through courageous actions, he exposed force and violence as the easy way out. King demonstrated that meeting the violent and cynical with Non-Violent Civil Disobedience produced a powerful mirror for the American People. He created power from non-violence. He demanded non-violence not just from individu ...
Today as we celebrate the life & work of Dr. Martin Luther King -- several days after so-called gun appreciation day -- remember a few of the leaders and men of peace who've been killed by madmen with guns: Dr. King, Mahatma Gandhi, John F.

Resignation is not always a virtue; it is a crime when it encourages tyrants: there are no tyrants where there are no slaves!” –Jose Rizal (Simoun to Basilio in EL FILIBUSTERISMO) “I do not mean to say we should win our freedom with the sword; the sword now counts for very little in the destinies of modern peoples but indeed let us win by deserving it, exalting individual reason and dignity, loving the just, the good, the great, even dying for it. And when a people reaches these heights, God provides the arms, and the idols and tyrants fall like a house of cards, and freedom shines in the first dawn!’ –Jose Rizal (Padre Florentino in EL FILIBUSTERISMO ...

But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.Matthew 5:39 There have been those throughout history who have found that what Jesus said was potent and dynamic — that turning the other cheek actually puts one in control.Mahatma Gandhi understood this. The entire sub-continent of India was freed from the powerful British rule because Gandhi read this verse and, although he was not a believer, he believed what Jesus said. He inspired an entire nation to turn the other cheek, and it blew the Brits away. After all, what could the British do? They could beat the people with clubs, fire guns into their midst — but not without destroying the morale of their own army in the process.Martin Luther King, Jr. found the same thing to be true. If the protestors had fought back, the US marshals would have felt justified in firing their guns indiscriminately — and the Civil Rights Movement would have died. But peaceful resistance won out an ...
When we choose to stop rationalizing, profiting from and in some cases even enjoying, for any reason violence, we will stop being violence and start being kindness, we will start being kindness and stop choosing violence, when we stop being afraid of one another and all and start being in Love with one another and all, as is our truest nature to BE. Mankind will then transform from being the manufacturers of war, the breeders and trainers of fear mongers, Life takers, to the creators of peace, the bearers and teachers of Love givers, Life servers.

You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. “The Roots of Violence: Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice, Politics without principles” ~ Mahatma Gandhi “Peace cannot be ac ...
"Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are great examples of fantastic nonviolents who died violently. I can never work that out. We're pacifists, but I'm not sure what it means when you're such a pacifist that you get shot. I can never understand that." -- John Lennon

David Coltart (regarding ZANU recent attack on MDC members) Just yesterday President Mugabe stated in Parliament that there should be no more violence. Until these words are matched by the deeds of his followers on the ground there will be no meaningful change to the way we conduct our politics in Zimbabwe. As for us in the MDC the following words of Martin Luther King are apposite and we share those beliefs: "I've decided that I'm going to do battle for my philosophy. You ought to believe something in life, believe that thing so fervently that you will stand up with it till the end of your days. I can't believe that God wants me to hate. I'm tired of violence. And I'm not going to let my oppressor dictate to me what method I must use. We have a power, power that can't be found in Molotov cocktails, but we do have a power. Power that cannot be found in bullets and guns, but we have a power. It is power as old as the insights of Jesus of Nazareth and as modern as the techniques of Mahatma Gandhi."
Greatness in our materialistic world is defined as fame, popularity, scholastic or economic achievement, and notoriety. GREATNESS MAY RESULT FROM THESE QUALITIES, BUT THEY ARE NOT THE DEFINITION OF GREATNESS. Greatness may best be defined by the people throughout history whom we consider great. Among those who would be considered great in the context of their influence and impact on human society are such names as Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther, Martin Luther King, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, George Washington Carver, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Mahatma Gandhi, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Walt Disney, Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein, Babe Ruth, Jesse Owens, Florence Nightingale, Helen Keller, Pablo Picasso, Sam Walton, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, the Wright Brothers, Steven Jobs, and Bessie Coleman.

There were many veterans who fought against apartheid rule in South Africa, but Nelson Mandela was the leading figure of the struggle. So also was Martin Luther King jnr for Black America, Mahatma Gandhi for India and Kwame Nkrumah for Ghana. Coming to post-independence Nigeria, we had Zik, Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello. How can a ship have 3 captains? That was the beginning of the failure of our leadership.

In the early 70's while waiting in a broom closet with Dr. Martin Luther King at Georgia State University while FBI agents cleared the hallway of an angry mob outside, Dr. King asked me if I knew anything about Mahatma Gandhi. I said, "There is a rumor that, some time ago, he had sex with someone he actively dislikes." We both laughed.
“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.” ― Mother Teresa. “Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! - I have as much soul as you, - and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you!” ― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre “There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.” ― Mahatma Gandhi “When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.” ― Hélder Câmara, Dom Helder Camara: Essential Writings “It is a tragic mix-up when the United States spends $500,000 for every enemy soldier killed, and only $53 annually on the victims of poverty.” Martin Luther King, J “Life's ...
Nonviolens- In modern times, nonviolent methods of action have been a powerful tool for social protest and revolutionary social and political change. There are many examples of their use. Fuller surveys may be found in the entries on civil resistance, nonviolent resistance and nonviolent revolution. Here certain movements particularly influenced by a philosophy of nonviolence should be mentioned, including Mahatma Gandhi leading a decades-long nonviolent struggle against British rule in India, which eventually helped India win its independence in 1947, Martin Luther King's and James Bevel's adoption of Gandhi's nonviolent methods in the struggle to win Civil Rights for African Americans, and César Chávez's campaigns of nonviolence in the 1960s to protest the treatment of farm workers in California.

er King v Primary Sources v Martin Luther King was born in Atlanta, Georgia on 15th January, 1929. Both his father and grandfather were Baptist preachers who had been actively involved in the Civil Rights Movement. King graduated from Morehouse College in 1948. After considering careers in medicine and law, he entered the ministry. While studying at Crozer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania, King heard a lecture on Mahatma Gandhi and the nonviolent Civil Disobedience campaign that he used successfully against British rule in India. Over the next few months King read several books on the ideas of Gandhi, and eventually became convinced that the same methods could be employed by blacks to obtain Civil Rights in America. He was particularly struck by Gandhi's words: "Through our pain we will make them see their injustice". King was also influenced by Henry David Thoreau and his theories on how to use nonviolent resistance to achieve social change. After his marriage to Coretta Scott, King became pastor of ...
Thoughtful thought of the Day The Spirit of Gift We have learned much from the Native Americans, the Australian Aboriginals, the indigenous people of India (adivasis) and the Bushmen of Africa. We have been guided by Jesus Christ, the Buddha, Mohammed and Mahavir. We have been inspired by Valmiki, Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Jane Austen and many other writers. We have benefited from the lives of Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King. They were not motivated by fame, fortune or power. Buddha claimed no copyright on his teachings, and Shakespeare received no royalty cheques. We have been enchanted by music, paintings, architecture and crafts of many cultures, from time immemorial. We have received a Treasure House of traditions as a free gift. In return we offer our work, our creativity, our arts and crafts, our agriculture and architecture as gifts to society to present and future generations. When we are motivated by this spirit then work is not a burden. It is not a duty. It is not a responsibi ...
"Above all things let us never forget that mankind constitutes one great brotherhood; all born to encounter suffering and sorrow, and therefore bound to sympathize with each other." Albert Pike "I believe that if we really want human brotherhood to spread and increase until it makes life safe and sane, we must also be certain that there is no one true faith or path by which it may spread." Adlai E. Stevenson "The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood." Martin Luther King, Jr. "A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history." Mahatma Gandhi

Some interesting Unknown or interesting facts about Mahatma Gandhi
Sometime I prefer visiting the hardest and most negative state of any human race. This is where faith and love is ignited, it is the journey that Jesus Christ did at some point, it has been affirmed by Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King Jr., Mohammed, Mandela, Michael Jackson, and other legends. Through trying times the legends have shown us what truth is and what life is all about of our never giving up spirit anytime an obstacles or challenges show up. The way up is to go down as quickly as possible and slowly climb up to where we ought to be. This is a journey that has confused a lot especially in the humble times of a genius genesis just like waiting to be discovered by the world, a good example of Mark Zuckerberg among other young strong believers of small time bombs of success. Let us not give up advancing our generational mindednesd of impacting and improving lives.

Loving is not an easy job. It requires a strong will, commitment, sacrifice, endurance and faith. However, once you successfully do it, you are as great as Martin Luther King Jr, Mother Theresa, and Mahatma Gandhi. Thus, never stop trying to love!
Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi have something in common. Apart from respect for each other, both were advocates for social justice.
The problem with the use of violent confrontation strategies is that they quickly escalate to the point where the parties' only concerns are victory, vengeance, and self-defense. In these cases, the moral arguments of people who are being unjustly treated become irrelevant. What matters is that they have used violent strategies and their opponent is, therefore, justified in a violent response. This problem is complicated by the fact that both sides are usually able to argue that the other side started the violence. Non-violent resistance strategies, such as those pioneered by Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are designed to avoid this trap by absolutely refusing to be drawn into a violent confrontation. Far from being cowardly, this is a strategy that requires tremendous courage, self-control, as well as a willingness to endure pain and sometimes even death. The strength of nonviolence lies in its ability to dramatically reduce the moral legitimacy of those who persist in using violent strategies ag ...

Martin Luther King's last address on April 3, 1968. "Life is a continual story of shattered dreams. Mahatma Gandhi labored hard for the independence of his people but was assassinated and died with a broken heart because of the partition of the country and the enmity between the Hindus and the Muslims. We all think about death and every now and then I think about my own death and my funeral. But I don't think of it in a morbid sense. What would like people to say about me? I would want to be likened to a drum major for justice, for peace, for righteousness and all of the other shallow things will not matter. I do not have any money or the luxurious things of life to leave behind. But I just have a committed life to leave behind. And that's all I wanted to say." He was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in his hotel.

Speaking to a packed, hushed hall in Oslo yesterday, Aung San Suu Kyi reminded us why her name is so often spoken in the same breath as Mahatma Gandhi's and Martin Luther King's. In a speech by turns personal and universal she spelled out her philosophy of non-violent political change, rooted in her...

“Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.” ― Joan Crawford “I don't know the question, but sex is definitely the answer.” ― Woody Allen “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” ― Mahatma Gandhi “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” ― Martin Luther King Jr. “Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” ― Anne Frank “A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” ― George Bernard Shaw
About our Mahatma, Mohandas K. Gandhi, the “Great Soul,” was anything but a failure. In a world seemingly dominated by violence and hatred, Mahatma Gandhi reincarnated the ancient idea of Ahimsa, non-violence, as the only way of living in peace. His example influenced and inspired many later peaceful struggles, for example the Civil Rights Movement of Martin Luther King, Jr. Despite India’s shortcomings, Gandhi never lost faith in Ahimsa: "My faith is as strong as ever. [. . .] There is no hope for the aching world except through the narrow and straight path of non-violence. Millions like me may fail to prove the truth in their own lives; that would be their failure, never of the eternal law
"And so that, if I talked about that this morning, I could talk about it not only from what the Bible says but from personal experience, first-hand experience. But I beg of you to indulge me this morning to talk about the life of a man who lived in India. And I think I'm justified in doing this because I believe this man, more than anybody else in the modern world, caught the spirit of Jesus Christ and lived it more completely in his life. His name was Gandhi, Mohandas K. Gandhi. And after he lived a few years, the poet Tagore, who lived in India, gave him another name: "Mahatma," the Great Soul. And we know him as Mahatma Gandhi." Martin Luther King, jr...

I have read some great speeches by great men: Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, JFK, Thatcher, Reagan, Churchill, Obama, Golda Meir, Zik, Balewa, Awo and Saddam. The greatest speech I have read, however, is the one made by Jesus Christ called The Beatitude...!
Nothing you do will ever be good enough. There will always be critics. There will always be detractors. Someone will always be disappointed in you, angry with you, belittling everything you’ve accomplished. Mahatma Gandhi was one of the greatest men who ever lived. He had a lot of critics during his lifetime, constant opposition to what he was trying to accomplish. He embodied truth, love and non-violence, and was assassinated for his troubles. Martin Luther King is a similar story. Same with that dude named Jesus from way back. Today, you can look to the sports world for easy examples. While Michael Phelps was busy performing unprecedented Olympic feats in 2008, internet trolls were busy criticizing his diet. He should be eating wholewheat bread instead of white bread? Really? I think the white bread worked just fine. Kobe Bryant reinvented himself as a team player to win the last two NBA championships. People hate that guy. Lance Armstrong dominated the sport of cycling after beating cancer, yet the h ...
The history of free men. Whether it be Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr, or Mandela, was not necessarily written by the hooves of the jack boots or by blood, but by choice, their choice. Your choice of response to external stimulus defines who you are , your character and strength, your being. It codifies your internal nature,it is YOU

Why is it that so many of my heroes… Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Ernesto Che Guevara, Martin Luther King Jr., Oscar Romero… are martyrs?
Obama once said the three men he admired the most were Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think." Martin Luther King, Jr. "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Albert Einstein I just told someone YESTERDAY, "Think about someone else other than yourself. Think about their position. I may not have a "pot to tee' in or a window to throw it out" but I STILL BELIEVE if I do right long enough one day I will look up and see the SUN SHINING in my life. "When I am getting ready to reason with a man, I spend one-third of my time thinking about myself and what I am going to say and two-thirds about him and what he is going to say." Abraham Lincoln "Man falls from the pursuit of the ideal of plan living and high thinking the moment he wants to multiply his daily wants. Man's happiness really lies in contentment." Mahatma Gandhi
It's Good Friday so I want to say a few words about Jesus. Whether you believe he was the son of God or not, he still existed. He cared about people of the lowest denominator; *** gamblers, thieves, misers, and inspired them to change their lives. When he spoke, the world stood still. When he died that horrible death, he died for what he believed in. He died because he refused to change or deny what he was seeing was a world around him that was wrong. So even if you don't believe in Jesus, you have to respect the man for what he did, just as you would respect Mahatma Gandhi, William Wallace, Emiliano Zapata, or Martin Luther King. Today is the day that we consider the death of Christ, the day he was nailed limb by limb to a cross then had a spear driven into his side. He wasn't afforded any dignity,he died slowly and painfully in front of his mother, and finally was taken away. So my guess my point is, Jesus may not mean anything to some of you religiously, but maybe he should be admirably. He did mor .. ...
