Gandhi's Legacy

Listen to the silence. Let it soak in. It says, “you’ve disgraced us.”

Consider that these silent protesters saw their seated, non-violent protesting friends and colleagues pepper-sprayed, at point-blank range by a shockingly indifferent campus policeman, this same day. And yet … calm.

We’ve seen this before, in 1960s America. It took years, but the Man lost.
