Who could turn people’s heads their way? Who can tell his feelings with no regrets? Who can stand up for most of the population of the United States of America? It was Martin Luther King Jr. He is not only those things, but he is my hero. In my opinion, he was selfless, inspiring, and ambitious.

The first trait that he had was that he was unselfish. A reason why he was unselfish was that he stood up for African Americans. This was where they could be treated equally as the white people. He tried to get the Americans to accept the African Americans for who they are, and not what they look like. He was able to combine the races within schools, restaurants, bathrooms, and making it possible for all to drink out of the same water fountains. That’s why Martin Luther KIng Jr was selfless.

The second trait that Martin Luther KIng Jr had was that he was inspiring. He changed people’s minds on how that thought of African Americans. He got some people to work together for equal rights.He also got people who believed in his cause, to stand together and start a rights parade. The people apart of the parade made signs and started to walk together on the streets of Washington, DC.

The last trait he had, was that he was ambitious. He kept fighting for equal rights, even when some people hated him. On his way home from giving his speech, “ I Have a Dream”, he was assassinated. He was shot by a sniper while standing on the balcony of his hotel room.

Martin Luther King Jr is an important man in our history. He is selfless, inspiring, and ambitious. That’s why he is my hero. Who is your hero? There will be many inspiring people that will be apart of our lives. They will be apart of our history, our present lives, and within our future. No matter who they are, they will contribute to making our lives much better.
