Congratulations to our Writer of the Week - Jayden L., 7th Grade
We live in a diverse world today partly because of Martin Luther King Jr. this is because he gave a speech about how people should have freedom and not experience discrimination. He explained it it doesn't matter what race you are, we should all have rights. Diversity means we should embrace different races, cultures, religions, genders, etc. Although we are lucky our world promotes diversity more than it has before, we must still continue to fight for it. We must break down the barriers that prevent diversity to create the peaceful world that Martin Luther King Jr. wanted.
In my opinion, we should have more people in this world that fight against discrimination. I was going shopping at the mall with my mom and while waiting in line, there was this one moment where the cashier was treating a customer differently than other customers because she didn't speak English well. The cashier became frustrated at the customer and this other lady went up to her and recommended not to treat the other customer poorly. After that, the cashier started treating her better because the woman told her that she would report her to management. I am happy that this woman took a stand for what is right and broke down a barrier that was preventing equality.
Once barriers such as discrimination disappear, we can live a better and longer life.Within a diverse world, we would be able to live more peacefully without crime, without criticism and without barriers that prevent us from forming connections and relationships with one another.
