Martin Luther King Jr was born on January 15 1929 The world he has born into like the world today was full of animosity greed and violence It was a time between world wars and a time when African Americans were still second class citizens Dr King was a visionary and he inspired many people to change their worldly ways By meeting violence with non violence Dr King forever changed the shape of a nation and the world Dr Kings dream was to live in a peaceful world in which everyone was treated equally Unfortunately with the times we live in it seems that we could be no further from his dream It has gotten to the point that violence is almost a way of life There is the war on terrorism the Israeli- Arab conflict and many other international conflicts Violence is also rampant on non-national levels There are school shootings domestic violence road rage hate crimes and verbal violence Not only is our society rampant with violence it glorifies it Heroes like James Bond Rambo and Arnold Schwarzenegger are praised for their violence Nobody gets upset when James Bond runs into a room and kills everyone People cheer and glorify him for this Sure he may not be the bad guy but is what he is doing isnt right Is his shoot first ask questions later philosophy really something that should be glorified It is hard to watch television or a movie without seeing someone get beaten robbed killed or raped Not only do these events occur they are depicted very graphically Realistic blood is shed realistic injuries are formed and realistic sounds are played This isnt even as bad as the violence in video games In video games you are the one doing the shooting robbing killing This is both disturbing and ridiculous Young impressionable children are exposed to all of these things They are desensitized by constantly seeing people
