‘Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.’ – Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Gandhi was a HUGE inspirational hero who helped influence many powerful people around the world including Martin Luther King, Jr., and Tibets’s Taldi Lama. His actions of peacefully protesting for human rights demonstrated to the world, that you didn’t need violence to accomplish this goal. He was arrested over and over and yet he still pursued for human rights. He would give speeches and do nonviolent protest. He was very persistent and in the end he won India’s rights in 1947. Above is a picture of him first returning to India to begin his journey to help save his people and give them rights.
