10 Gandhi Quotations


The Indian luminary, famous for leading the Indian nation to independence in peaceful means, is deemed an inspirational figure to this day, over 60 years after his death in 1948. 
As a tribute to Gandhi, here’s a collection of some of his thought-provoking quotes. 

1. ON LIFE
"My life is my message."

2. ON BEING A SOLDIER
“I regard myself as a soldier, though a soldier of peace.“

3. ON FAITH IN HUMANITY
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."

4. ON NONVIOLENCE
“Nonviolence is the first article of my faith. It is also the last article of my creed.”

5. ON THE SEVEN SINS
“Seven social sins: politics without principles, wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, and worship without sacrifice."

6. ON TRUTH
“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self sustained.”

7. ON THE "STILL SMALL VOICE"
The only tyrant I accept in this world is the 'still small voice' within me. And even though I have to face the prospect of being a minority of one, I humbly believe I have the courage to be in such a hopeless minority.”

8. ON LIBERTY
“I’m a lover of my own liberty, and so I would do nothing to restrict yours.”

9. ON FORGIVENESS
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” 

10. ON THE NATURE OF MAN
“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes."

Speak Out - A Poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti


Speak Out - A Poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti


And a vast paranoia sweeps across the land
And America turns the attack on its Twin Towers
Into the beginning of the Third World War
The war with the Third World

And the terrorists in Washington
Are shipping out the young men
To the killing fields again

And no one speaks

And they are rousting out
All the ones with turbans
And they are flushing out
All the strange immigrants

And they are shipping all the young men
To the killing fields again

And no one speaks

And when they come to round up
All the great writers and poets and painters
The National Endowment of the Arts of Complacency
Will not speak

While all the young men
Will be killing all the young men
In the killing fields again

So now is the time for you to speak
All you lovers of liberty
All you lovers of the pursuit of happiness
All you lovers and sleepers
Deep in your private dream
Now is the time for you to speak
O silent majority
Before they come for you!

Gardasil in Italy: My Daughter’s Two Year Battle With New Medical Conditions by Simona


Gardasil in Italy: My daughter’s two year battle with new medical conditions


By Simona 
Rome, Italy

Sane Vax, Inc.   27 June 2015

My daughter Chiara is 13 years old. She was an athlete with a history of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis with elevated levels of anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies. We discovered it much before receiving HPV vaccine.
I can tell you that she was a good athlete. Hashimoto’s did not stop her from participating in the World Championship Karate in Caorle twice. In 2010, she won the brown belt. Chiara’s other hobbies included painting, singing and practicing sports. That was before Gardasil.

Chiara’s story after Gardasil is as follows: 


She received the first injection of the HPV vaccine Gardasil in March 2013.  It was about ten days before her menstrual cycle. Afterward, she was sick for three days showing nausea, headache, stomach-ache and faint.
In April 2013 she was again sick for five days but the doctor said that could be just a strong menstrual syndrome.
In May 2013 she received the second shot and she was sick again for seven days.
During June 2013 she stayed sick for ten days.
By July 2013 she had an osteocondrite (a joint condition whereby a variable amount of bone and its adjacent cartilage loses its blood supply) at her astragalus (ankle) so she had to stop practicing sports. We contacted the gynecologist and she suggested to give her magnesium.
On September 2013 after the third shot, she started to have seriously strong stomachaches, like an acute allergic reaction. She did endoscopic exams, but all negative. She was treated with proton-pump inhibitors and she followed a diet without milk and derivatives, but no success.
In December 2013 she started to experience vasovagal syncope with strong stomachaches, headaches and insomnia.
During January 2014 she was kept in hospital for ten days, she repeated the endoscopic exam, and they found some eosinophil cells (eosinophilic esophagitis is an allergic inflammatory condition of the esophagus) and low levels of vitamin D.
During February 2014 she started to take vitamin D, B1, B6, B12, selenium. She started feeling better but, the heavy pain, insomnia and syncope episodes did not stop.
During the 2013-2014 school year, she missed more than 90 day of classroom for the above pains and symptoms.
In July 2014 the endocrinologist/gynecologist suspected endometriosis and decided to give her a contraceptive (Claire), but through NMR analysis everything appeared negative.
Although we brought Chiara to several medical doctors only one, a gynecologist, suggested that everything could be related to Gardasil treatments. All the others to which we talked about this idea treated us like mad people.
I have read several articles, but I am very impressed with one by Lloyd W. Phillip (Gardasil Syndrome). I think I have finally realized what happened my daughter.
At the moment she is taking selenium, magnesium, vitamin D, B1, B6, B12, melatonin and live lactic cultures. Although all the celiac tests were negative we discovered that celiac diet and low level of histamine related food seems to have some positive results.
The gynecologist changed her contraceptive with a stronger one to stop the menstrual cycle flow.
In the last month she is doing better, she had just one episode of syncope, less pain and the number of normal days have increased.
The syncope episodes seem to be related to her menstrual cycle, in particular the worse days are those overlapping with ovulation and menstruation days.
After two years she was finally able to go to school for two consecutive weeks. Before, she could not eat without vomiting, study or sleep. Meeting her friends for a day out was nearly impossible.
I wrote my daughter’s story to give you an idea about the injuries that Gardasil could cause. I hope our experience could help you decide to investigate before you decide to use an HPV vaccine.
Above all, I hope Chiara and all the other survivors of new medical conditions after HPV vaccinations find treatments to help them get their normal lives back.
