Icon by Robert Lentz

"The only people on earth who do not see Christ and His teachings as nonviolent are Christians." -- Mohandas Gandhi

"He began to discard the symbols of white Western superiority. He gave up all Western clothes; he refused to eat Western foods. He rejected the Western lifestyle. He stopped aping the oppresor in order to bring the oppressed a new appreciation of themselves. He made brownness a holy color."

--Joan Chittister, Benedictine Sisters of Erie, Pennsylvania

"A lot of people are waiting for Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi to come back -- but they are gone. We are it. It is up to us. It is up to you." — Marian Wright Edelman
