Martin Luther King day, I can remember being in school as a thirteen-year-old child, and a young girl who is from England the teacher set us a project to write about one inspirational person and I decided to write about Martin Luther King. I gathered what books was available including the biography and autobiography and wrote a twenty-page document with pictures about Martin Luther King Jr. No one in the class had chosen someone like him, in fact, the vast majority of the children did pop stars and actors. I can say now as a young white English girl I took pride that day reading out the document I had written on such a wonderful man as Martin Luther King Jr. Still, i sit here and think of the project I created.
I would like to wish all the Americans and your families a happy Martin Luther King Day.
