In Honor of Gandhi - Peace Vigils on Friday February 1st

"When in 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!"
Mohandas K. Gandhi

He was a man who walked his talk!
January 30th, 2008 will be the 60th anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi.
Let's honor his memory by walking our talk as well and stopping the war in Iraq!

"There are many causes that I am prepared to die for,
but no causes that I am prepared to kill for."
MK Gandhi
