"In Gandhi's footsteps..."

Stumbled upon two great articles in today's edition of the Vancouver Sun:

"In Gandhi's footsteps..."
"Cut from the same non-violent cloth" by Giles Hewitt//
An article about anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare and his fast in India as a form of non-violent protest, encouraging "the youth to come forward and speak up against a rotten system"

"As long as we have compassion..."
Another amazing article,"Combating the 'culture of despair'" by Douglas Todd//
This article follows a visit to Vancouver from Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh and his conversation with Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki touching on the 'culture of despair' filled with people concerned about the future of the world - war, ethnic conflict, terrorism, economic crises, and more.
