Be the Change … 

Life’s Mission of Dean Lawrence Edward Carter, Sr.

Mohandas Gandhi used to say, “We must be the change we want to see in the world.” He was not talking about the whole world getting together to bring a change, not even a nation or a community; but bringing about a change down to the level of personal responsibility of single individual human being. Changes happen because individuals become the change. Rosa Parks did what she did in Montgomery, Alabama, because she wanted to be the change. She changed an entire nation. So did Gandhi when he countered the violent oppression of the British rulers with a more forceful non-violence. Both became the change themselves.

Dr. Lawrence Edward Carter, Sr. has led his entire life for the purpose of Peace and Reconciliation. He is an extraordinary example of a person who believes in being the change and importance of the means to accomplish the change. He is working hard to inspire the world to BE THE CHANGE in the footsteps of Gandhi, King and Ikeda.
