Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln are BIG DEALS because THEY GOT SHOT AND KILLED.
George Washington and Rosa Parks? Eh... they're okay, they just died.
Friends, why is Martin Luther King, Jr. important to us?
"HE GOT SHOT."
Here is our comparison of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Luckily, the standards were learned, I think:
- George Washington was the first president and called The Father of Our Country.
- Abraham Lincoln was a president and called Honest Abe.
First - they died. Second - Lincoln got shot (and then a student later added WHERE he got shot).
