What Martin Luther King, Jr. Means to Me

By: Jason Codes (Student, Lester Middle School)

Date Posted: 2000-01-28

Once a great man
As he will always be.
He is the one that said ďI think I canĒ.
And made everyone see
That equal rights were right
And that we should love each other and not fight.
How has he impacted my life, you may ask?
What does he mean to me?
He is the reason why we live in peace and harmony.
Always using nonviolence
Always offering love and care
Even when people did not treat him equal and did not treat him fair
Even when people didnít care about what he felt
His dreams and ambitions
He always stuck to that one same mission
That one day we could all just join hands
Brother and brother, Black and White,
As long as we loved and did not fight.
How has he impacted my life, you may ask?
What does he mean to me?
He is a reason why we live in peace and harmony.
A civil rights leader;
A powerful man;
One that never gave up or never gave in.
Thatís why he is a hero now as he was then.
He has changed my life and many more
His dream has succeeded
And now everyone knows
That martin Luther has changed our future.
How has he impacted my life, you may ask?
What does he mean to me?
Martin Luther King is a reason why we have peace, love and harmony.
