Turkey needs more role models like Mahatma Gandhi

Gone but not forgotten. With ever increasing violence, hatred, evil and war making the media headlines the World needs some role models who put goodness and fighting for peace ahead of their own interests. The short video on Gandhi will give people a snapshot of the life and sacrifices of a truly inspiring hero.

His quote below is so relevant to the current developments in Turkey where retribution, revenge and the self-interest of individuals appear to be more important than the greater good of the country, democracy and its citizens.

 

“Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent than the one derived from fear of punishment”- Mahatma Gandhi
