“If you could have coffee with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?” When asked that, my list usually consist of Jesus, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, a few celebrities and some relatives I never had the privilege to meet. Nonetheless, Martin Luther King is definitely one of my inspirations/role models and I think that celebrating MLK day every year is very important. It is good to remember and appreciate the things our country and people went through in order to gain the freedoms we have today. Martin Luther fought for equal rights, was a man of great faith, and wasn’t afraid to stand up for what he believed in/take risks. Because we have school off on this holiday, I was able to participate in a few activities on my campus, such as a MLK walk and a free showing of Selma at the movie theatre. It was a really awesome day of remembrance, and with that, I leave you with

“Look at where we have come, and celebrate those accomplishments, but also look at how much more we can improve on. There are many things today that are still corrupt and unfair, and they need to be changed.”
