I think Martin Luther King is one of the most important examples of fighting for what you believe in. He fought for the rights of all the black people, who, by that time and still nowadays, didn't have any rights at all. He fought for the freedom of speech, because in those days, they couldn't even sit down in a bus, without mentioning that they couldn't vote, or that there were still slaves. And he always did it supporting peace and non-violent movements.

I think Martin Luther King jr. was a brave man, because he fought for the civil rights of black people, although he knew it was dangerous. Since he was very young he took part in many pacifist activities. He was really good at making speeches. For example, he made a speech, called "i have a dream", which is very famous nowadays.
