809 words - 3 pages

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is one of the most remembered and respected peace heroes of the 20th Century. During Gandhi's years of working in India and South Africa, he went through humiliating experiences of racial discrimination that propelled him to take a stand. Gandhi's heroic struggles in life set the stage for people like myself to keep the peace when all else fails.Gandhi's philosophy of keeping peace while acquiring his human rights led to triumphant victories.

He promoted non-violence and civil disobedience as the appropriate way to obtain civil liberties. Gandhi's theory was, "...if enough people protested in this way, the government would listen" (Indian).Gandhi believed his strategy would have long lasting effects. Unfortunately, "Gandhi was arrested time after time by the British for his performance in South Africa and India" (Kheda).
