The Dream Pledge - The Action

Lesson 4: The Action

The one thing that America's founding fathers, Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks had in common was their commitment to some action. For the chance to be free, the early American colonists left their family and friends in other countries and came to America. Their actions lead to the formation of America. Martin Luther King Jr. sacrificed family, career and his very life to make America and the world a better place. Rosa Parks could have moved to the back of the bus like everybody else, but she weighed the risks and counted the costs and determined that she would go to jail to be free.

{ "Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals."—Martin Luther King Jr.
