This I Believe
Equal rights are one gift that everyone has. No one can have
more rights than another person, because we all are created equal. God
creates us all, and that way we all have the same amount of rights.
People have come from around the world to America just to have our
kind of rights. This is able to happen because a person does not have more
than another does. In different parts of the world, power is one attribute that
everyone wants. Some countries treat people with no respect and hurt them.
This was not how God wanted us to treat each other. In America, everyone is
treated with the same amount of rights, which is a key reason why people
People have an opportunity to do whatever they want in their life.
Nothing can stop a person from doing what they love. Anything in life is
possible and is able to be reached. Anybody can achieve his or her goal. Just
stick your mind to it, and don’t let anything stop you from getting it.
Having these rights is and will always be a privilege to me.
An equal right is the best wish a person can have. Not everybody has
our same rights. People such as Martin Luther King, Jr. were treated
unfairly and cruel. They fought for their rights, and receive penance. This
was not just for them but also for everybody. The biography of Martin is an
exciting and enjoying story of how he worked for his rights. Other people
take their rights much too gratefully. Instead, more people could have this if we
Many people that were not white and migrated to Ellis Island in the
early 1900’s were often treat worse than Americans were. Jobs and
discrimination effect many foreigners. This is an example of how the
equal right has and has not altered since that time.
Another hero to equal rights is Rosa Parks. When she passed away
sometime ago, many commemorate her courage and her actions. Rosa was at the
front of a bus once, and refused to give up her seat to another person. This
would not have happen if there were equal rights. However, her doing this
gave freedom to all colored people’s actions.
The segregation of colors was an important reason why not all people
could have rights. A similar action that was happening was the immigration
act. America was cutting all illegal aliens in the United States. This is fair, but first you must become an American to live a life here.
Everyone has an opportunity to live a life at the fullest. Everyone deserves a chance to do what he or she desires. Rights in the future can only progress if we do something at this moment. People want a chance, and you can help.
