Hello! I am Martin Luther, you may know me from writing the 95 thesis. This man on my right is one of the greatest civil activists of all time, Martin Luther King Jr. Although we are from two different time periods, we both made a change for the better.
I wrote the 95 theses in 1517. At this time Catholic churches told their followers that whenever you did something wrong you must give the church money or an indulgence. I wrote the 95 these against indulgences.
I am known as a civil rights activist. I wrote many quotes and speeches about how segregation was wrong and that we all should be treated as one. " I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character", this was my dream and I would not stop until I achieved it.
At first, I had very few followers but I kept going. I would not stop until everyone knew that indulgences were wrong and they were not fixing your mistakes. They only paid the priests. But fairly soon more and more people saw the wrongdoing of the church and began to follow me. I began to realize that I made a great change to history. This change made people realize that money cannot fix your sins, only you have the capability to do that.
When I gave my I Have A Dream speech millions of people marched alongside me. Here is where I knew that my impact on this world had made a change. There is still work to be done to make an end to segrigation but I will keep fighting.
Both of us have made a huge contribution to history. But our main purpose wasn't to make history it was to make a change to wrongdoing. Both of us are here as an inspiration to you to speak up when you see wrong. Now although we are from different times we both did something to change society for the better and we encourage you to do the same.
