A Bold Man

Today is the birthday of Gandhi, a man who faced unending heartbreaking frustrations and yet changed the world radically and for the better. He was also notably nice to people, including his jailers, most of the way. A sterling example of bold living. This sculpture of him sits three blocks from my office.

I am so glad to know that Thursday is the birthday of such a great man. I wonder if there is a genetic component to individuals who can still continue to be exceedingly nice even in the face of evil. It has to be a struggle at times. At least it is for me.

Ghandi is one of my heros.

I hope there is a genetic component, Debbie, because it would make me feel a bit off-the-hook, which isn't exactly noble of me.
