Remember Gandhi

October 2, 2007

Today is the first International Day of Non-Violence, marking the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi. It seems fitting on this day that we stand with the people of Burma: sign this petition to make your voice count.

To Chinese President Hu Jintao and the UN Security Council:

We stand alongside the citizens of Burma in their peaceful protests. We urge you to oppose a violent crackdown on the demonstrators, and to support genuine reconciliation and democracy in Burma. We pledge to hold you accountable for any further bloodshed.

“Blessed are those who make peaceā€¦” (Gandhi spent two hours a day meditating on Jesus’s teachings!)

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
