Mahatma Gandhi

I just finished watching the 1982 movie Gandhi for the first time and was thoroughly impressed. His message of noncooperation with injustice is every bit as relevant in the 21st century as it was in the 20th. It was also interesting to see that the idea of buying local products and supporting local businesses is not new; Gandhi taught that buying English clothes contributed to their poverty and they created huge bonfires with their imported garments. He was humble enough to clean latrines, the work of the Untouchables, and wise enough to see everyone as his equal. I am truly inspired by his legacy and will continue to reflect on it as I tread my own path.
