Most of the time events happen because someone wants change to happen, and to get change they have to take matters into their own hands. Martin Luther King Jr. was someone who wanted change or African American people, he wanted equal rights. He took matters into his own hands and brought people together to support it and wrote his “I have a dream” speech. He got the change that he was hoping for by working hard for it with lots of support. The impact one person can make can change the course of history. There are two different ways that a person can impact the world, positively or negatively. Barack Obama was someone who positively impacted the world by being the first African American president of the United States. He showed the world that since he can be the president, any other African American can do anything a Caucasian can. While on the other hand though, there are people like Adolf Hitler who had an extreme negative impact on the world when was in power. He was a racist man who wanted to rid the world of Jewish people. He put and killed millions of people in concentration camps. The impact that the influencer leaves all depends on what their motives are. If someone is motivated to help the minorities and give them a voice, they will have a positive impact. If someone is motivated to get rid of the minorities in order to make the world a “better” and “stronger” place then they aren’t helping anyone and will end up with a negative impact.
