"Be the change you want to see in the world." |
An activist for forty three years, Bernie Meyer took his message one step further and began emulating Gandhi in his dress, words, and actions. In his newly published book, THE AMERICAN GANDHI, Bernie presents his graphic initiation into activism and details his experiences while portraying Gandhi and advocating justice and peace. In this memoir Meyer also presents cutting-edge theories about human motivation and violence utilizing Gandhi's experiences and principles. He applies these theories to core violence especially global climate change, nuclear weapons, and resource depletion. The intent is to contribute to survival with conviviality.
"We must refuse to wait for generations to furnish us with a patient solution which is ever growing in seriousness. Nature knows no mercy in dealing stern justice. If we do not wake up before long, we shall be wiped out of existence."
"If humanity is to progress, Gandhi is inescapable. He lived, thought and acted inspired by the vision of humanity evolving toward a world of peace and harmony. We may ignore Gandhi at our own risk."
-- Martin Luther King, Jr.
