Arun Gandhi thanks Mr. Greenleaf’s for their wonderful thank you notes following his appearance at a marvelous school in Canby, Oregon.  Here are some of the things students had to say:

“Living in the light is an easy title to learn, it’s just up to you to take the first step into a new shining perspective.”

“Your a person that makes people laugh and change the way they think.”

“I was soo thankful that I got to hear your message about helping the poor people or others that need it…I was soo inspired by you, following in your grandpas steps and I believe wherever he is, he is proud of you.”

“Poverty.  Hunger.  Neglect.  These are things not many people take time with.  They hear about it and ignore it…However there are people who only get what they’ll use and save the rest.  The people who are less fortunate in their times of need.   These people love with all they have and cherish everything everyday…”

“Living your life as light would mean avoiding bad moments and also thinking about the good side of things.”

“Being angry and using violence is just ruining the world.”

“If we all cared for one another world hunger and homelessness wouldn’t be such a problem.”

“He [Arun Gandhi] saved all 128 babies that were in the streets, that was an amazing and life changing thing to do…:

“The world can be a dark place.  There is evil within our cities and government but also light…”

“Poverty is a heartbreaking thing…”

“It’s good to be kind in the least way you can to somebody.”

“Don’t waste things…”

“If only people with more money would help.  This world would be a better place.”

“Don’t let your light fade, let it shine.”

“…what ever you give them means alot to them even if it’s a little thing…”

“This is an experience I will cherish forever…”

“[Mahatma] Gandhi was able to be the light at the end of the tunnel for everybody across the world.”

“It takes courage and bravery to live your life as light.”

” He [Mahatma Gandhi] was trying to banish the darkness of war.”

“…got me thinking that I don’t always appreciate what I have…”

“Showing random acts of kindness, with no intention of being rewarded, are the kind of people we should look up to and admire.”

“[Mahatma] Gandhi was light in darkness.”


“…we need to act more like [Mahatma] Gandhi who was brave, sweet, loving, and so much more!”

“Blood, violence, and many disturbing things are in this world, but one thing can stop it, peace.”

“Once the negativity becomes too great, the holder explodes, shattering into tiny shards and causing casualties.”

“That story harmed my heart because I can’t imagine kids living in the streets with no food, money, water and shelter…I am so glad that Arun Gandhi saved these kids lives.”
