Sunday Inspiration: When I despair

when I despair

“When I despair,
I remember that all through history
the way 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.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

I dedicate these wise and prophetic words to the brave men and women battling Vladimir Putin, a tyrant who will eventually fall.

    Thank you! I really needed that reminder. I do try to keep the “long view” in mind, but sometimes the “now” overwhelms me.

    This is such a sad and terrible time for the poor people of Ukraine. Those who survive will live with it forever. Their lives have been forever changed. Prayers are so important now along with material help. This is unthinkable.
