During our annual Monterey Heights Peace Assembly, Peace Maker awards are presented.
Each year classrooms vote for one of their peers to be selected as the "Peace Maker" Recipient.
Listed below are some " Peace Maker" traits that our recipients exemplify, just as Dr. Martin Luther KIng did.
Patience: Martin Luther King, Jr. had to have patience throughout this time if he truly wanted to succeed. He knew that things wouldn’t change overnight.
Bravery: Obviously, it took mass amounts of courage to stand up to thousands, even millions, of people and proclaim his dream. But Martin Luther King, Jr. made it known that what he wanted was equality and that he would fight till the end to see it through.
Leadership: MLK was the one that took the leadership position during the fight for equality. He was the one that stepped up to the plate when no one else would and found the answers to everybody’s questions.
Persistence: Even from the confines of the Birmingham Jail, Martin Luther King, Jr. did not stop fighting for what he believed in. When the world was against him, he didn’t take breaks.
Trustworthiness: Those who followed Martin Luther King, Jr. trusted him with every bone in their bodies. They had full confidence that he would be the one to put a stop to discrimination and segregation.
Assembly times coming soon.
