homage

As today marks the midpoint of Gandhi's salt march (March 12th to April 6th) in 1930, it behooves us to take a moment and reflect on his life, his methods, and his message. Martin Luther King Jr. learned of Gandhi, learned of his ways, and adapted his teachings and practices to the struggle for freedom here in the U.S.A. For this we are forever indebted to both great men. May we have the courage to continue their great works.

"Generations to come, it may be, will scarce believe that such one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth." (Albert Einstein on Gandhi)
