“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” MLK
In my book Bully at Ambush Corner, Martin Luther King, Jr., plays an important and influential role in the life of the main character, Rocky, who every day gets bullied by a classmate. To Rocky, MLK is a hero, a role model, a person to emulate. This desire to be like Martin causes Rocky challenges in his personal life. But he perseveres and all is well in the end.
If you know children who need a hero, encouraging them to read Bully at Ambush Corner might tweak enough interest in Martin to encourage them to move on to one of the many biographies written on the life of this courageous American.
Bullying ends lives. Like Martin, we must not remain silent about things that matter.
