I personally agree.To think and speak on behalf of others is noteworthy, to serve and act on behalf of others is heroic, but what do we call someone who gave his words, actions and life on behalf of others? Martin Luther King, Jr. is one of the few people in history who have so profoundly changed the world in such a short time. His visions and actions for social unity, racial brotherhood, true peace and social welfare were not only carefully thought and weighed, but also acted upon with strategic finesse.
I believe that Martin Luther should be considered a hero , the reason I believe he should be believed to be a hero is because he stood up for fair rights for everyone not just an individual race as most people think. He stood up for what he believed and even if it killed him he went without fear and did what his heart told him to.
Yes, Martin Luther King should be regarded as an American hero. He was a leader in the fight for civil rights, which brought great progress to the United States. He encouraging people to act in a non violent manner to achieve their goals of attaining equality. Martin Luther King's words and actions were certainly heroic.
Yes, Martin Luther should be seen as a hero, because he saved interest in religion for a lot of people. Without his contributions, there would have continued to be conflict in the Catholic church. Martin Luther had valid points and was justified. He helped a lot of people put the Christian church back on the proper path.
Martin Luther had some strength of character, when he went up against a church that used extreme violence to impose its will. When he nailed his treatise to the door of the Diet of Wurms, he set in motion the conditions for the Enlightenment to take place. He risked a very slow and painful death for blasphemy.
No, he does not need to be seen as a hero, he should be seen as a criminal and also as a major radical protester. Although what he did turned out for the best, they did not know that at the time and he went against his government and revolted.
