MLK and NM both wanted freedom for Africa. They were both in jail for fighting for what they believe in. NM was in jail for a long time whlie in Africa. MLK was in jail for a couple of days.MLK is famous for his “I Have a Dream” speech. NM is famous for becoming president of South Africa after 28 years in prison. He then united the country from apartheid. In the movie” Invitcus” he used rugbee to united his country.The poem, called “Invitcus”, is written by Ernest Henley. NM wrote “A Long Walk to Freedom.”
Just like King Arthur, there are heros like him today. But, what makes a hero? There are many opinions on what makes a hero. My opinion is that a hero should be: brave, honest, loyal, nice, polite, not afraid of anything, can do anything he/she thinks of, smart, doesn’t judge,wise, and strong.
Anyone can be a hero. Some people think it’s policemen, firemen, or even a hobo. My modern hero is a preacher. A preacher teaches people about god and the bible. The reason I think that is because that if we didn’t have preachers then we wouldnt be able to learn about god. Plus preachers are the people to go to when your getting married. Also it’s because of preachers that the world is trying to be more peaceful.
“Invitcus” is a poem written by Ernest Henley. It was turned into a movie. Both the poem and movie are about how Nelson Mandela changed history in Africa. In the movie he used rugby to stop apartheid. Also, in the movie, he said the whole poem a couple of times but other times he said the last two sentences,”I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul.” Mandela probably wanted the movie to be called “Invitcus” because of the poem.
