Dear Dr Martin Luther King Jr one thing that i am glad that you did for us is you helped stop segregation because you did not care what color anybody was all you wanted was peace.And my dream is to be as kind as i can to people that are not like me.And the kind of world that i would love to live in is a world that has peace in it and people in there homes safe and sound with no one on the streets smooking or cursing but with people going to church and living the life there sopost to live and the life you would want them to live.and i also think that little kids like us can help make a big difrences to the world if we take time to care for the world and our familys and friends and make the worid a better place to live in.and finally here is a poem i have for you sometimes life can put you down but never give up because God will always be with you so dont fight remember Dr Martin Luther King jr.love Damaras obi.

IF Martin Luther KING,JR. Was still alive that would not change a thing MARTIN would not stop until everything was even he did what had to he went to jial for blacks so many times foe us and some people still does not have respect for that day because some blacks does want simler to them siting or standing next to them even if their the some color for some reason I still do not understand it.Do you think that I will be brave and bold like you are ?I ask that question because Iam really quiet and people the some color as me tease me and I am afried to talk back to them but trying to be brave and bold like you arethe best out of all the freedom fighters I think all you did a big change.Thanks every freedom fighters for being bold and brave.Stephanie Wint

Martin Luther King stopped
segregation by
1. Telling people to stop getting on buses.
2. Making speeches.
3. And he told people to protest with love peace and No Fighting.
