I am writing about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He is my hero because he worked for freedom and justice for our world and helped to improve how we live today. He worked to change laws so that all people would be treated equally regardless of their color or personality. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed that all people should be treated with respect. There will be only one school, restroom, water fountain, and store for all of the different kinds of people.

Dr. King also wrote a huge book about how he was going to help the world. This book is very famous now and can be found in many libraries all around the world. This book is called I Have A Dream. He wrote this book after he made his famous speech of the same name. This book tells everything he wanted to change in his lifetime and why he wanted to make changes in society.

I look at a hero as someone who is respectful and always tries to help us and the community all around us. A hero should always be nice, kind, and be there to help people. A hero should never let you down and always teach you things that you will remember all of your life.

I look at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a very respectful person who helped the world by fighting for peace and equal rights for all people. He was a very nice, caring, kind, and helpful person. Although he died, everyone remembers him as a very good person. At least I know that I do. That is why I chose Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as my hero.
