There was no Gandhi in the bloody Irish struggle for Home Rule. But, like the people of India, the Irish had long been treated miserably by the British. Fighting against the English troops was most intense between 1916 and 1921.

In 1921 the Irish won their freedom.

Wondering what my next stop in life is, I am reading the teachings of one of my mental mentors and ,coincidentally (or is it?) "New Year's Day" by U2 blares through neighboring glass.

Mr. "Mondo" affected my perceptions of the World by teaching me to think with everchanging expansive conciousness.

I am CMHS CLASS of '88 loyal esquire of the TRUDEALogies of the universe.

Thank you Professor Trudeau !
