Preserving peace on campus

Thank you for the article ``Gandhi Grandson Pursues Peace,'' Feb. 1. Two years ago, I invited Arun Gandhi to speak at Northeast Missouri State University. Since then, our campus has enjoyed a three-day, student-sponsored conference on nonviolence; a program on peace presented by members of our local commune; and a visit from Joseph McNeil, one of four African-American college students who sparked sit-ins across the South in 1960 with their own peaceful protest in Greensboro, N.C.

Mr. Gandhi's lecture certainly impressed our community. Most of all, he challenged us to end violence great and small by starting at the source - ourselves. Christopher W. Gregory, Kirksville, Mo. Professor of English Northeast Missouri State University
