 September 2000 Contest Entry
Role Models

My role model is Martin Luther King

He is my role model because he stood up for our rights and now there is not much racism in the entire world.  Now we don't have to listen to people talking about other people.

He influenced my life because there is no more racism against color people but he is no longer alive because he got shot and died fighting for our right and freedom.  I read that he was a nice guy and a lot of people liked him because he was a good leader and there are lots of people standing up for their own rights because of Martin Luther King in the world.

It is a shame he got shot because people could learn a lot of good things from him.

These are some reasons why Martin Luther King is my role model.
