29. Thank you nadin!
You are right that this movement is continuing to transform in many different ways. It's good to hear that people are realizing this will be a long commitment....the most transformation movements are long.

I watched the movie Gandhi the other night again and it reminded me of how long and challenging that movement was and how many peaceful (and at times not so peaceful) tactics were used by the people of India to overcome the British occupation.

As Gandhi said at the end of the movie (paraphrasing as I don't have the exact quote at hand): "throughout history tyrants have always fallen, and the good and love of people have always triumphed"
