The slavery in United States repealed in 1865 with an amendments in Constitution. But the situation of black people stayed the same almost for 100 years, nobody did anything about that. But on the 1929 on the 15th of January the liberator, the savor of the black people was born who changed the lives of black people lived on the territory of USA.
Martin Luther King was a great person.. What I like about him is that despite the fact he was a leader, he was on the top, he was always with people and for people! He believed what he said and proved it with his deeds. He traveled a lot through the country, gave speeches in public about problems of social structure, he inspired people to fight! What I admire is that he inspired them not only with words, but first of all with his own example!
And what I admire most of all is his bravery and courage. In his speech that he said the day before he died “I have a dream” he spoke out everything that people couldn’t say not only aloud, they couldn’t whisper among each other. He said the truth that everybody was afraid of. He gave a faith that helped them to win. He changed thousands of lives. He made a difference.
Martin Luther King died, but his dream stayed alive, it stayed in hearts of many people of America, dream that became a dream of each black man, that helped them to survive, helped to move forward and reach the aim. Martin Luther King was a permanent person in the history of USA and I truly respect and honor him for his strength and his persistence, for his character, for making people believe that they could, for making them free first in the souls and then in life.
