Do Great Leaders Make History?
“Do great leaders make history? Or does history make great leaders?”
I don’t believe that history makes great leaders, I think that great leaders make history. If we didn’t have such great leaders in out country, we would have no history, therefore great leaders make history. For example, Rosa Parks. She was a great leader. In the 60′s whites were treated so much better than the blacks. Rosa Parks was a black female who disagreed with all the rules that the country had made for the blacks and whites. They weren’t allowed to use the same water fountain, bathroom, restaurant, and even seats on the bus. The whites were told to sit in the back of the bus and the blacks were told to sit in the front. Rosa Parks did not like this rule so one day she walked onto the bus and sat in the back, ignoring everyone that told her to move to the front. She just stayed there and didn’t care what other people said. In the end she got arrested, but she made a difference and made history for being a great leader.
