    Dr. King did so many things that are important to our nation. His work during the Civil Rights Movement was incredibly important. I am very thankful for Dr. King and the other brave men and women who stood up for what was right even when that was the hard thing to do!

    I am so proud Martin Luther King Jr. was alive. Without him we probably still would be segregated. That would be very sad. Good topic to talk about.
