  12. 12. 06/08/09 copyright 2006 www.brainybetty.com; All Rights Reserved. Gandhi brought light, hope, Love and peace to India that no one else was willing to fight for. He was a beacon of sanity in an insane world. If it is true that the evil that a man does lives on after they die, then surely the good does too. &quot;When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.“ -Gandhi
