Martin Luther King Jr. Day
MLKMartin Luther King Jr. firmly believed in equal rights among all races. He gained significant recognition during the March on Washington on August 28, 1963, when he delivered his truly remarkable speech "I Have A Dream." He inspired hope within others to strive for a day where people of any race could join hands and have no hate or anger between them. He believed that love was a stronger force than hatred.

Martin Luther King Jr. believed strongly in utilizing nonviolent methods to create peace within the community and was one of the first civil-rights activists in the 1960's who orchestrated nonviolent protests. He arranged nonviolent protests such as boycotts, sit-ins, and marches to effectively improve the quality of life for African Americans in the United States. 

Let us remember Martin Luther King Jr. for his vision of respect and peace between everyone. Let's come together to remember his efforts, work a little harder to be nicer to one another, and love each other regardless of race or ethnicity.
