MLK dream

In the hallways of a college, we are celebrating the return of Martin Luther King Jr. There are posters and streamers decorated on the ceiling. We see come in a limo with all around him. He comes into the cafeteria and we yell out ‘Happy Anniversary!” to him. Smiling, he thanked everyone and almost had tears in his eyes. As the day went on, he was shown a tour of the campus but he had a disappointed look on his face as he saw some students argue, a student fell and hurt herself but no one helped.

Violence ensued when two guys started fighting and it got really physical almost hurting Martin Luther King Jr. When the fight was broken up, he was very angry, pleading and wanting to leave. The tour guide told him to just stay one more hour for a speech one of the students prepared. But he said no still wanting to go, he gave it one more chance and stayed. The tour guide took him to the cafeteria and they saw two students on stage.

The girl started off saying that: there will be violence and hate wherever we go. People will judge you no matter what race, gender or sex you are. However it is how you overcome from these actions and hateful words. The second student which was a boy continued: Our hearts beat as one; we all have the same feelings when it is hurt. You can tear someone down so much that they can come back stronger and harder. Martin Luther King Jr’s speech to this day brought the races together. It is for us to stay together and to love one another. Applause echoed the room and there was a standing ovation. MLK teared up a little, but he knew he could leave the campus happy as he came.
