MY THOUGHTS:

WHEN YOU ARE INFORMED ON KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ONCE WERE OBLIVIOUS TO, YOU RECEIVE AND SHOW GRATITUDE OF THE GIFT YOU WERE GIVEN. RESEARCHING AND OBTAINING THE INFORMATION ON GANDHI, ONLY INSPIRED MORE DESIRE AND WILL TO BE THE CHANGE I WANT TO SEE. FROM NON-VIOLENT TACTICS, INSPIRING AND MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES, A REMARKABLE INTELLIGENCE AND KNOWLEDGE OF HUMANITY, A DRIVEN EFFORT TO ACCEPT ANY CONSEQUENCES FOR A GREATER CAUSE AND TO ENDURE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE OF HIS LIFE FOR SOMETHING HE BELIEVED GENUINELY IN…….IS DEFINITELY SOMEONE I AM GRATEFUL TO HAVE LEARNED ABOUT!
