  1. I believe his heart and mind are one of true christian beliefs. I learn a lot from him every time I look at a documentary about him. His words so so powerful because he speaks from the heart. When we engage in a oral communication, we should imitate his footsteps. Notice how he barely looks down on his paper whenever he gives public speeches. Every word coming out of his mouth is not from his memory or paper, but from his heart. That alone proves that his view toward partiality and discrimination are true.
