Martin Luther King Jr., Mandela, Gandhi, etc.

Real examples to follow

Real examples to follow

En mis clases, sean del nivel que sean, siempre que hablo de valores, trato de poner ejemplos tales como los de Martin Luther King, Jr, Mandela o Gandhi y tantos otros que dedicaron su vida a la causa de la paz y a mejorar las vidas de otros. Uno de los problemas que veo en Estados Unidos, especialmente en su sistema educativo, es la tendencia a tomar como ejemplos de heroes a policias o militares. No me gusta poner como ejemplos a quienes usan la violencia para solucionar problemas.

In my classes, at any level, and when we talk about values, I always bring examples such as those of Martin Luther King, Jr, Mandela or Gandhi, among others, who dedicated their lives to the cause of peace and to improve the lives of others. One of the problems I see in the USA, specially in its educative system, is the tendency to take militaries and policemen as examples of heroes and values. I do not like to take those who use violence to solve problems as a model to follow.
