🌱 Have you heard about the story about Gandhi, “The Little Boy and Sugar”? Read the story below 👇👇👇 Among the hundreds of people were waiting to visit with Mahatma Gandhi were a mother and her young son. When it was their turn, the woman said “Gandhi, please tell my son he must stop eating sweets. It is ruining his health, his teeth, it affects his mood. Every time he has it, I see the change in him and there is nothing I can do to stop him from eating it, and then eating more. He’s a good boy, but when it comes to sweets, he becomes a liar and a thief and a cheat and I’m afraid it will ruin his life. Please, Gandhi, tell him to stop.” Gandhi looked at the boy for the longest time as he cowered there, trying to hide in his mother’s sari. Finally, Gandhi broke the silence and said “Come back to me in two weeks time.” She wondered why he didn’t just speak to her son when he was already there, but she complied with his request.
In two weeks they returned, and after waiting for a couple of hours, she was able to approach Gandhi once again.
Hearing her repeated request, Gandhi looked the boy in the eye and said, firmly, “Don’t eat sweets”. “That’s it?” said the mother. “That’s all you’re going to say?” She was surprised. “Why didn’t you just tell him that two weeks ago?” Gandhi replied, “because two weeks ago I was still eating sweets myself. I could not ask him to stop eating sweets so long as I had not stopped eating sweets.” He explained that he could not speak of or teach her son to not eat sugar if he himself had not taken that journey.

Muharram,1st month of the Islamic calendar year. In this holy month we commemorate the martyrdom of Hussain the grandson of the last Holy Prophet who sacrificed everything he had to defeat injustice and to save humanity and Islam.
He has created such history that even after 1400 years not only muslims but even the greatest leaders of his history look up to him and take lessons from his life and sacrifices.
Mahatma Gandhi said “I learnt from Hussain how to achieve victory while being oppressed.”
. “I have spent more than 20 years in prison, then on one night I decided to surrender by signing all the terms and conditions of government. But suddenly I thoughth about Imam Hussain and Karbala movement and Imam Hussain gave me strenght to stand for right of freedom and liberation and I did.” -Nelson Mandela
"Se queremos alcançar neste mundo a verdadeira paz e se temos de levar a cabo uma verdadeira guerra contra a guerra, teremos de começar pelas crianças; e não será necessário lutar se permitirmos que cresçam com a sua inocência natural; não teremos de transmitir resoluções insubstanciais e infrutíferas, mas iremos do amor para o amor e da paz para a paz, até que finalmente todos os cantos do mundo fiquem cobertos por essa paz e por esse amor pelo qual, consciente ou inconscientemente, o mundo inteiro clama." Mohandas Gandhi, in 'The Words of Gandhi'
Yesterday was International Day of Peace.✌🏽But shouldn't every day be a day of peace? Just as Gandhi said to be the change you wish to see, let's be the peace we wish for the world. Radiate peace, be love, and together we create a universal ripple. 🙏🏽☮️💓#yogiapproved#bepeace#belove#bethechange#gandhi

The Guggenheim Museum in NYC @guggenheim plans on featuring this exhibit called "Art and China After 1989" according to The NY Times as a "highly anticipated show" that will take place Oct.6th. It is a 3 month exhibition. Two "artists" featured, married couple Peng Yu and Sun Yuan claim that their work that will be featured at the Guggenheim is one of their "less radical pieces". Part of this so-called "art" features a seven minute video showing four pairs of American Pit Bulls tethered to eight wooden treadmills. According to The NY Times, the camera closes in on them as they face each other, running at a high speed!!! The dogs are prevented from touching one another, a frustrating experience for these dogs that were "trained to fight".💔 The dogs get wearier and wearier, their muscles more and more prominent, and their mouths increasingly salivate. Even more sickening, this "piece" was first shown live with the actual dogs appearing before an audience at the Today Museum in Beijing back in 2003!! 🚨WE NEED TO COME TOGETHER TO MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD AND STOP THIS ANIMAL CRUELTY BEING PASSED OFF AS ARTWORK‼️ LET'S EMAIL THE GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM AND LET THEM KNOW WE WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS DISGUSTING DISPLAY OF ABUSE‼️
➡️ EMAIL THEM AT email@example.com **however difficult it may be, please be respectful in the language you use in your correspondence so it is taken seriously.
➡️You can also find all other methods of contacting the museum on their website at www.guggenheim.org/contact-us
