Arun Gandhi

Philosopher and peace activist Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, launches his book The Gift of Anger.

"We should not be ashamed of anger. It's a very good and a very powerful thing that motivates us. But what we need to be ashamed of is the way we abuse it," said Mahatma Gandhi.

Gandhi's practical philosophy of nonviolence helped liberate India and was the model for the advancement of civil rights around the world. Arun now applies this philosophy to modern events, highlighting how we have to stop fighting each other to effectively address the real dangers - mass shootings, lethal bombings, people being killed in cold blood - which are now part of everyday life.

Followed by Q&A with Arun and book signing.
