Scholarship Persuasive Essay

     "The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people,"- Martin Luther King Jr. Now a days there a lot of people that lead wrong ideas and it results to violence at times. The world needs good people because there is less conflict and to maintain safety.

     Having good people creates less conflict, keeping everything balanced. For example, when little kids fight over a toy. If they both were nice enough they would be generous tokens each other the toy and play together. Of course keeping everything balanced can occur in more extreme conflicts around the world. Another difference would be having less violence and less innocent children/families getting hurt. Lately has been people killing other people for no reason at all which results with a big amount of deaths.

     There is also the problem of people not feeling safe. They feel as if they are always in danger that they can't even sleep just to maintain their own safety. Knowing that there are criminals, that haven't been captured yet, are walking around in our own community is terrifying. We should have the ability to go outside and relax but at times we can't even do that. This is why there should be good people so we can all be calm and cooperative.

     On the other hand, there are a few people who think it doesn't matter to them. Meaning they don't really care what is going around in their world. Also the fact that they already feel safe around their community. They have the feeling that they are already safe since they live in a country or city that is ranked the top safest.

     In conclusion, this world does need well behaved people because it's for our own safety and to have less disagreements. Having obedient people would involve security and peacefulness amongst each other. So in this case we should try and be nicer to each other, talk to one another in a caring way, and show our love and never leave anybody behind. Together we can change the world!
