We greet the morning of the 68th return of “that day.” At 8:15 a.m., August 6, 1945, a single atomic bomb erased an entire family. “The baby boy was safely born. Just as the family was celebrating, the atomic bomb exploded. Showing no mercy, it took all that joy and hope along with the new life.”

It is the centenary of Gandhi's brief work 'Hind Swaraj'. This document is Lanza del Vasto's critical reading of the book, thanks to which we the great-granchildren (or in some cases great-, great- great- etc.) of the colonisers can learn much about what the actions of our forefathers actually produced. It may help us to reflect on how similar or different we are to them.

English translation of "L'obbedienza non è più una virtù"
don Milani. "I had to teach my pupils well how a citizen reacts to injustice. How he has freedom of speech and of the press. How a Christian reacts also to the priest and even the bishop who errs. How each one has to feel responsible for everyone else."
