My Lifetime
Shaun, Age 9, Portland, OR

Do you know about my life time? If you donít, let me tell you about it.

I was born on Jan. 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. I had a brother and a sister. My mother, Alberta, was a teacher and my father, Martin, was a pastor. They named me Martin Luther King.

I helped to change laws for the rights of blacks. I changed buses, schools, and restaurants. I wanted people to solve problems peacefully, not with fighting.

I wanted to help people. I wanted to live in peace. I dreamt that people could be kind and respectful to one another.

I was a pastor like my father. I finished high school two years early. I married Coretta Scot. I held a lot of protests. I was a good speaker. I died April 4th, 1968 from a gunshot.
