Ain't Scared of Your Jails

This was an awesome video and very interesting. it was very inspirational that it was college students just like me who were the ones making the difference and pushing the civil rights movement forward. It takes a tremendous amount of strength to be able to sit in a restaurant and know that you're are without a doubt going to get arrested and you might be beaten to death. the amount of will power those students showed was amazing. so much can be learned from this and one of the most important things to take away from this is that you can make a difference. even one person standing up for what they believe in can make a difference and to never be afraid to fight for what you believe in. one of the most important quotes i heard that stood out to me was "If you're able to keep calm, yo' re able to think quicker." Being able to keep calm and not fight back when you're being attacked would be the hardest part to me.

  1. I also think it is crazy that these people were the same age as me. Personally, I don't think I have the courage to put myself through a situation like that, as sad as that is to say. The people who were and are able to do things like this deserve more recognition.
