Gandhi created a revolution of change in India. He had an enormous impact that forever that vibrant country, and he did it all with nonviolence. Gandhi led people and taught them to stand up for themselves and in the process made India a free and independent country. The unfair treatment would no longer stand, it was time for change. The nonviolence policy worked because Gandhi did not give in, he accepted punishment and responsibility, and his followers were loyal.
Summery Rough Draft In the article "How Gandhi Changed the World", Heather Whipps states how Gandhi is a highly respected man for his efforts to free India from British rule using non-violent methods. For this reason, Gandhi is a highly respected man around the world. One reason Gandhi was a superior person was because he supported Indian civil rights. In the article it says "Its hard to imagine the thin robed Gandhi working in the rough and tumble world of law, but Gandhi did get a start in politics as a lawyer in South Africa, where he supported the local Indians community's struggle for civil rights."
King was raised in a middle class family and was well educated. Throughout his entire career as a ministry, Martin Luther King Jr. was always opposed to violence. He always stood his ground. Although he had been physically attacked but he never reacted with violence. King believed on the Christian faith.
The Montgomery Bus Boycott started early in December, 1955. Martin Luther was still a young minister, but his ability to organize people in peaceful protest became immediately obvious. On the same day the boycott began, King was appointed president of the Montgomery Improvement Association. The Montgomery Improvement Association was a collective group of black pastors and local leaders.
Shek tried to disperse them, but they wouldn 't budge. ”(175) The Sherpas and porters really care about Zopa and they were willing to sacrifice their important jobs to save him. Sherpas and porters are from a country that is pretty poor. When they held the silent vigil they sacrificed not only themselves but their families.
Tutu said "I never doubted that ultimately we were going to be free, because ultimately I knew there was no way in which a lie could prevail over the truth, darkness over light, death over life". The South African apartheid finally came to an end in 1993 ("Desmond Tutu Biography"). In part due to Tutu 's advocacy, bravery, hope, and vision many South Africans received fairer social
“Martin Luther King Jr. was a social activist and Baptist minister who had played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mid-1950’s” (history.com). He was also “a well known civil rights leader and activist who had a great deal of influence on American society”(aspenridgeprepschool.org). King gave this speech so he could end segregation forever. So what makes someone an American Hero? Someone that has changed America for the best and spoke out when no one else would.
18.) Throughout Martin Luther King Jr.’s whole life, he worked for the betterment of the civil rights movement until his last breath. In 1968, Martin Luther had his life taken from him by gunshot and was assassinated. He was protesting with sanitation workers that day as the movement marched towards Washington D.C.
The Rodney King trial was one of many eye openers for not just the city but the nation. It really questioned people’s mindset on how they feel about race, and especially back in those times, where they were just getting on a road to unity. During the trial King did not have much to say, with him recovering and all; however he did feel as if the riots and violence was getting out of hand, which lead him to make a televised plea to not just his people but to everyone asking them to just stop and think. Think about what they were doing for the generations before them as well as the generations that will come soon after them. It was a historic day in history when the video was released about his beating.

Second, I know that a lot of people get mad because the staff doesn 't do their jobs and they don 't respond to reports, so I want to make sure all the players are happy and they think of Serpent staff team as a good and skilled team. Another thing is people say some staff abuse for their friends or for famous people but if I get staff ill make sure no one does that and will also make sure that no matter how famous you are you get treated the same. Third, Very many people get mad after waiting for 1-2 hours in team-speak to get moved, but with me as staff, I 'll try to do all the support rooms
Jamestown is where it all began… King James Ⅰ sent 144 men to America to settle there, and it caused a lot of bickering and fighting along the way. The English men believed that the natives that already lived there would welcome them, so they let their guard down and were attacked. The reason that the natives didn’t want them there was because their chief Powhatan received a prophecy that another group would later become better than his, and he tried to defeat any other group that opposed his. Since the natives wouldn’t help them, the men started going very hungry, along with the intense heat, and within 8 months, more than half the men died. The hunger got so bad, that John Smith started trading with the enemy, the natives.
Critics argue that even with his reputation and political place (National Spokesperson) he did not demand for more equality for the African American population. Laws such as the Jim Crow and Black Codes prohibited blacks to vote or engage in political meetings. Overall, I think Washington did a great job of helping the African American community gain educational rights. He worked hard to give the blacks what they needed (education) and at the same time kept peace within the two races.
All the people in the tons attitudes had changed the next day because all the non Indigenous people had complained about Gracey getting lots of travel expenses and items for free. I think that the next day when Mr Jenkins said this he was trying to say that if Gracie wants to get anywhere in life as an aboriginal she needs to fight for her rights and stand up for herself against the white people in the little town of Cunningham. I think Mr Jenkins said this to give her an important message saying that life will be hard. “do you understand” (J. Moloney, pg 22 ) I think that in this situation, Mr Jenkins knows that there is a risk of Gracey not being able to compete or have the gear needed for the big trip to Brisbane.
