I have a dream…
It is now 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered. He was a source of inspiration for many of us.
Martin Luther King Jr. was a unique leader of the Civil Rights Movement. He is still today a historical icon because of his use of peaceful tactics in the fight for justice and equal civil rights.
I am inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. because of his courage and focus on having a passion for something that is bigger than ourselves: ‘A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.’
I am inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. because of his unique ability to change lives and society through his speeches and way of communicating dreams. His most famous speech ‘I have a dream’ was held for 200 000 people and became a turning point for the American Civil Rights Movement. In the speech he tells about his dream about ethnical equality and an end to racial discrimination.
I am inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. because of the way he gave responsibility to robust people with a good heart: ‘The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.’
I am inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. because of the way he reinforced the positive: ‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.’
I am inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. because he claimed that people need to take responsibility for their own lives and lead themselves: ‘Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.’
