Celebrate with Peace
the Birthday of
Mahatma Gandhi

Oct. 2, 1869 to Jan. 30, 1948


“I cannot teach you violence, as
I do not myself believe in it.
I can only teach you not to
bow your heads before anyone,
even at the cost of your life.”
.
Gandhi's List of Seven Sins:
Wealth without work
Pleasure without conscience
Knowledge without character
Commerce without morality
Science without humility
Worship without sacrifice
Politics without principle
.
"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall — think of it, always."
.

Gandhi can best be honored on his birthday by making PEACE with someone.

LET'S GIVE PEACE A FIGHTING CHANCE

Let's Give Peace a Fighting Chance


Imagine that!  I share a zodiac sign with two other human rights advocates who have my high regard:  Gandhi and Jimmy Carter - both Librians. 

Of course, a passion for human rights is not limited to any particular zodiac sign or group of people. 

YOU are the change that is needed.  And all you need bring with you is LOVE.


HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, PRESIDENT CARTER!

 (DOB:  October 1, 1924)



Carter quotes:

"If you fear making anyone mad, then you ultimately probe for the lowest common denominator of human achievement."

"I say to you quite frankly that the time for racial discrimination is over."

"I think what's going on in Guantanamo Bay and other places is a disgrace to the U.S.A.  I wouldn't say it's the cause of terrorism, but it has given impetus and excuses to potential terrorists to lash out at our country and justify their despicable acts."

"
The best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation."

"There should be an honest attempt at the reconciliation of differences before resorting to combat."

No More War

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
~Romans 12:18

" . . . all men are created equal."


Unite for peace, justice, and human rights!

War Is Not Healthy



On October 1 and 2, we were blessed with two great men whose example leads us in the path of PEACE and brotherhood. 

Celebrate their birthdays by seeking inner peace, reconciliation with someone who has offended you, and by promoting world peace.

God has such creative genius that he chose to express himself in diversity!

Gorgeous Trees!


He made differences in plants, rocks, cloud formations, and people.  Despite all the different types of plants there are in a forest, they co-exist and make something beautiful.

WE CAN, TOO.
