Martin Luther King Jr. was a great and beautiful man. He helped society find a heart. He helped people find out that looks don't matter, and that heart is what matters.
There was a time when black people were attacked because of the color of their skin but now in our time, that does not happen because of Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks and others. Martin Luther King Jr. day is a day that we remember the faith and hard work that these people have put in to having everyone equal.
