Hope


Quote: "We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope."

Fact: Martin Luther King Jr. was jailed a few times for leading nonviolent protests and boycotts, and his home was bombed multiple times, but he kept moving forward. He wasn't sure if he would see the end of segregation in his lifetime, but he still shared his hopes with the world. He was 35 years old when the U.S. passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, outlawing segregation.

What kids can do: Think of others throughout history who endured hard times. Even if challenges slow you down, don't give up.
