There are also scads of Gandhi quotes available. Here are two of my favorites:
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”
“We may never be strong enough to be entirely nonviolent in thought, word and deed. But we must keep nonviolence as our goal and make strong progress towards it.”
For dinner tonight, you may want to go to Whole Foods (there is one near all of you I think) and grab one of their fabulous lentil/barley veggie burgers or make up any of the many peaceful, "do no harm" plant-based, vegetarian recipes on this blog. Gaze into your own beautiful sunset or the ones I have posted pictures of, listen to the sounds of nature and Peace Out xoxoo.
