M.L.K Anniversary

This week is the anniversary of Martin Luther King made a speech. In the beginning of his speech was I had a dream. His dream was about black and white people to come together. schools. He fought for his civil rights for the blacks.

Martin Luther King didn’t want as much blacks in jail. The blacks and the whites were segregated. The blacks and the whites had to go too different schools and different towns. The blacks didn’t have as much money as the whites so the blacks were kind of poor.

Back then the blacks lives were hard. They were sadly crippled because of the whites. The blacks were treated badly like they were slaves. The blacks had to give up their seats on the buses to the whites. If they didn’t they would go straight to jail.

In Martin’s life he worked hard. People tried to kill him. They bombed his house and stabbed him. Unfortunately it was the end of his life.  He got assassinated by getting shot in the heart in 1968. He got assassinated because the whites wanted to be shellfish and they didn’t want the blacks to have equal rights.

Cross Country Reflection

  • Brain Storm
  • Running
  • Legs arcing
  • Sleeping in the mud/Getting dirty
  • House colours

‘At the starting line I was getting ready to run then the microphone beeped’. When we run I got into 9th Position. I had gotten up to the mud where Miss King and Miss Walters where. When I was going past them I suddenly slipped and my shirt and shorts got dirty. When I got up to Miss Squires my legs started to ark.

I was in Tainui which is blue. I was Still in the same position I was in when I started. I got to the goalpost and on to my second lap I got into 8th position when I got out the gate I was starting to have fun. Whenever I got up to Miss King and Miss Walters I always slipped.
