Journal 19- MLK Day

As you know, this Monday, January 21, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We were asked to instead of writing about our mitzvah trip (because we didn’t have one; on Friday we had no school) to write about what MLK would want on this day. I think he would want us to give speeches about the importance of social equality and how important it is to make no slavery and no segregation. It is just plain wrong to have cruel laws such as different drinking fountains, seats on the bus, and other segregation laws like they used to have. We should never have to experience that and, as Jews, we know how it feels.
