Gandhi changed the world by proving that through unity, nonviolence, and intelligence, reforms can be made. He united the people of India and South Africa, led them to commit acts of civil disobedience, and knew how far he needed to push the nonviolent resistance in order to break his opponents, which allowed Gandhi to gain independence for India, and to become one step closer to ending discrimination against colored people in South Africa. By succeeding in his movements, many other people, including leaders and activists all over the world chose nonviolent methods to solve their own problems, such as Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, and Cesar Chavez. Gandhi inspired so many people and movements all around the globe, and continues to do so 149 years after his birth. - Xena S.
