A firm believer in the equality of all people, Eleanor believed the United States had a moral duty to initiate change for racial equality. Although a majority of the white population thought she was too radical in her views, this did not deter Eleanor from fighting for civil rights.

Throughout countless lives, conflict is regarded as a common fact of life that one must endure. People must learn to handle stress and pressure while also being open to the ideas and feelings of others. Many more people over the years have tried to decipher the best way to deal with these unfortunate happenings and some have come within the smaller measure to achieving the great feat.

Ataturk and Martin Luther King were two incredibly influential people who made huge political and cultural changes in their respective country. Despite their many differences, Ataturk and MLK shared a few similar views in that they both strived for social equality.

The civil rights movement that he led was one of the most influential movements in American history and changed the country forever, just like how Ataturk’s secular political movement changed Turkey forever.
In today’s society, it is rare to find a person who possesses even a few qualities of a true hero. The definition of a true hero is a person who is admired for their courage, achievements, or noble qualities. Having people in the world that are willingly prepared to be a hero in any situation is crucial to society. Imagine what 9/11 would have been like without average everyday people who chose to take heroic actions and save other lives while risking their own. Many people think that acting heroically comes naturally and can not be taught, on contrary others think that acting heroically is a quality that can be acquired.
