A nation without peace is like a child without a heart. A child will surely die without his or her heart and a nation will also die because it is without peace. Every nation needs peace and unity. There is a proverb which says, “united we stand and divided we fall.” This means, that as a divided nation we cannot stand because every person would want his or her decision to be taken into consideration.

Gandhiji
April 9, 2012
Our visit to Gandhi's home of refuge and prayer was unexpected as Diane (Diane de Terra) and I wandered through the city. The museum told Gandhi's story through a series of questions and photos.
