Memorial Day is a day to remember all of the brave and selfless people who gave their lives in order to serve our country. Memorial Day is filled with lots of celebration such as barbecues and parades. These celebrations are a great way to show your appreciation, but it’s super significant that we understand the meaning behind Memorial Day. Memorial Day means many things to me. Firstly, it reminds me that I should recognize all of the courageous men and women who fought for our freedom and liberty.
Looking back at all the volunteer opportunites I take advantage of, Operation Santa will have a special place in my heart because of the joy the activity brings me. Ultimately, activities with the same orientation have inspired me to make a positive impact on my community in the future. Operation Santa has been a teaching tool towards the important ideal I learned at a young age, "Help others even though they may not be able to help you." Moreover, interacting with individuals who are not as fortunate as I am has humbled and motivated me to become the best person I can be in order to help other hapless members of my community. I believe this project is one of the most rewarding activities any volunteer can participate in.
Now, I'm just happy that God has allowed me to live in this period to see what is unfolding. And I'm happy that He's allowed me to be in Memphis. (Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 1968) Dr. King knew that God had a purpose for him where he was planted, that was to lead the civil rights movement “The civil rights movement was a struggle for social justice that took place mainly during the 1950s and 1960s for blacks to gain equal rights under the law in the United States”. (History.com, staff, 2009). Dr. king fought for Human dignity, why was anyone denied the right to vote, employment or even forced to the back because of their ethnic background.
“The originator of the March on Washington in 1963, Randolph aimed to obtain government sponsorship of black jobs.” (History). Randolph’s understanding of the economic needs of blacks predated the riots that drew the nation’s attention to them. He also became a critic of the black power movement, which he believed was programmatically bankrupt. The Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended segregation in public places and banned employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, is considered one of the crowning legislative achievements of the civil rights movement. The victory made Randolph the leading black figure in the labor
Martin Luther King Jr. was an African American civil rights leader from the 20th century. He opposed the government by looking for fair laws for all people regardless of race. By participating in protests and giving speeches for non-violent civil disobedience he risked his own freedom and ultimately his life. Both figures represent resistance to the government and defiance to certain laws that even though accepted by many, are deemed unjust
In the year of 1963, on August 28 was a speech given by Dr Martin Luther King JR. On the mArch of Washington, the purpose of the speech was to end segregation on blacks and whites against discrimination. The speech is considered a seminal US document because this was a very important moment of history. First of all, on August 28, 1963, on the Lincoln Memorial. Dr. Martin Luther King JR, is trying to make a statement that Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation to free the slaves. This draws to ur attention of the significance of the setting because they had broken that law on treating black with respect and for them to be free.
Martin Luther King, Jr.’s letter relates to the Civil Rights Timeline because not too long after the letter was written, segregation ended and equal rights gradually increased. As a result Martin Luther King Jr.’s letter created a chain of events that saved many black citizens lives. For example, “anyone who lives inside the united states can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds.”(SB 207) After all, it seems like Martin Luther King was referring to the blacks because it was the time of segregation between white and colored people. He claims every single person living in the United States should be treated the same no matter what. Overall, the white and especially colored people shouldn’t have felt discriminated.
In 1955 a former preacher named Martin Luther King began the Grassroots Movement, also known as the early movement. Dr. King’s had goals for the early movement, with a strategy that was supported by many African Americans. His goals was to move toward integration of white and black people, along with hopes to have black people given political rights and equality. Martin wanted a world where black and whites worked together equally, and side by side. His goals was to diminish the mindset of “us and them” and, instead create a world of “we”.
Martin Luther king Jr day is the federal holiday in United State on the commemoration of his achievement in his birthday. The day is celebrated as the life and legacy of a man as the holiday for his timeless value, respect, dignity and humanity that he brought to his life. It is the day to embrace the glory of humanity, compassion, faith, integration and respect to each other regardless of the race, color, origin and orientation toward some faith and believe. We are a human and humanity is the greatest verse in this earth. Nothing more than humanity exist in the earth which integrates us all equally in the same treads of necklace.
