MLK- Emily Peirano
This movement shows that overcoming our biggest obstacles is just not a dream, but a reality. All of these people fought for their biggest dreams, fears, and challenges. The demonstrators were young but fearless. They stood up for their rights and beliefs. The success of this movement came from the strength, positive attitude, and determination of the demonstrators. Often, many believe violence is the answer to speaking out and being heard. However, through these movements it proves that is not the case. Being nonviolent makes your voice even louder. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "we are not afraid and we shall overcome." To be so strong at your weakest moment is something truly remarkable. To have such dignity and reverence at a time half the country is against you is something Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did so well.
