I remember the first time we commemorated Martin Luther King Day as a nation. Since that time, I've taught many American Diversity classes about the tactics Martin Luther King Jr. used in trying to make positive changes for African Americans. His civil disobedience tactics were often patterned after Gandhi, who was a great man of peace. Gandhi was assassinated 65 years ago today. I think we should have a day to commemorate him. Ironically, he was murdered while at a prayer meeting. He was the world's greatest advocate of non-violence in this century. If you haven't watched the movie "Gandhi," you owe it to yourself to rent it now and watch it.
