Gandhi: Persistence Through Adversities
"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won"- Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi is a great example of someone who was persistent. For instance, Gandhi started a boycott of British goods, on March 10th, 1922, and because of this, he was sentenced to 6 years of prison. But, he served only 2 of the years because he was bailed out.Another example is when the British started to tax salt in 1930, Gandhi led a 250 mile march to the ocean to get his own salt. This shows persistence because when he faced an adversity, he didn't yield, he tried to accomplish his goals another way. Gandhi has inspired many people like Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr. to be persistent.
