Wise words by Gandhi that apply to Trump

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

1. Yes, but millions have paid the price before those tyrants fell.

It just seems surreal to think that it is happening here.

2. Gandhi also said:

Non-violence in its dynamic condition means conscious suffering. It does not means meek submission to the will of the evil-doer, but it means the putting of one's whole soul against the will of the tyrant. I am not pleading for India to practice nonviolence because it is weak. I want her to practice nonviolence being conscious of her strength and power.

3. I am so tired. The stress of what is happening to this country what is overwhelming.

It almost makes me want to try pot(or whatever the kids are calling it these days).

4. There are 2 species named Cannabis Indica & Cannabis Sativa. Gandhi also said:

In the midst of death life persists, in the midst of untruth, truth persists, in the midst of darkness light persists.

Mahatma Gandhi

And, on that note, I will light up a potent hybrid of the two species.

5. I have never tried any kind of non prescription drug.

It has always frightened me. My stepfather was an alcoholic and my mom was addicted to valium. All I remember about pot was the slacker kids smoking outside of door number 9 at high school. I'm too uptight I guess. Have a toke for me my friend.
