Professor Dawn Roe’s Class reflects on MLK

Man of Principle

Dr. Martin Luther King served as an honest eye on the racial and discriminatory acts running through society then and now. I believe all societies need people like Dr. Martin Luther King, who would tell you how it is. He lived with the clarity of a man who   understood morals and ethics and could not be swayed on his principles. A quote from Martin Luther King about our cultural categorizing of social hierarchies is still applicable today, “Reconsider your definitions. We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to mankind”. Martin Luther King could see the distorted view we have in our social world but still is inspired and inspires other to hope and work for change.

For the Future

Martin Luther King Jr. not only was a leader of the civil rights movement, he was also a great example of a leader. He did not dwell on the past mistakes of his fellow man; instead he looked for a better tomorrow. He did not hate the past, and instead loved the idea of the future. With effort everybody have the ability to shape and mold the future to what the desire. The future is whatever you make it out to be. “The time is always right to do what’s right.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
