Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #91 ~ Gandhi

Please join us this week and create a project inspired by the movie


Live as if you were to die tomorrow.
Learn as if you were to live forever.

When I think of Gandhi I think of simplicity and the color white. Gandhi is such a dedicated example of peace with out violence.. When in South africa he was unfairly treated because he was an Indian... He lead a non-violent movement to gain equal rights for the Indian people in South Africa. Gandhi was invited to return home and help bring India's it's Independence from the British Empire. Gandhi agrees and again approached the effort without violence. He faced many troubles along the way and is even imprisoned.

When India is trying to define who was during the early years of it's rebuild as a nation there is a huge conflict between the Hindus and the Muslims.. It erupts into a nation-wide violent upheaval. Gandhi declares a hunger strike, saying he will not ear until the fighting stops..

A defining moment for me is Gandhi's conviction to non-violence.. He will forever live in his example of peace and wisdom.

I hope you all enjoy this movie and leave enlightened with peace and a new way to solve conflict as I did.
