For example, “We who have come here to Washington have come here because we feel we have to be winter soldiers now.

Martin Luther King Jr. is a well-known civil rights activist and he is also a minister. In 1967, King gave a speech at a meeting called “Clergy and Laymen concerned about Vietnam” (King). King starts of by telling his opinion about the Vietnam War. He believes that the war is an enemy of the poor, because America would never invest money into the poor as long as the war was still going on.
