Ghandi

I have just watched the movie "Ghandi" for the first time. Although I have always known about Ghandi's life and achievement, I have never seen it this personal. There is something absolutely fascinating about those that sacrifice so much for something greater. I have recently thought much about this. What difference can one make if he or she is willing to sacrifice? To stand up for something. You would be marvelous to think of the meeting between Gordon B. Hinckley and Mahatma Ghandi. How about myself? Ghandi could have stayed in London, and been a great attorney, probably helping out a lot of people. But he decided to just give up everything, and live the humble life that mattered so much to so many. Would I have a greater impact being a succesful ad executive in New York, or a teacher in the inner city in Brazil?

You should forget about making commercials. You should forget about making movies. You should forget about music videos. It's all a materialistic, worldly waste of your time and soul. It's all about the poor little kids in the inner city. If you're not helping them, then WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE???
