Youth Commission members share the impact that Martin Luther King Jr. has on their lives.
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in downtown Savannah was the place to be Monday afternoon.
Big crowds lined the streets for the 34th annual Martin Luther King Jr. parade.
Students in the Chatham County Youth Commission, said that each day, they work to follow and apply the principles that King taught.
"He inspires me to definitely prove my actions of wanting to be a better person and make equality a bigger thing than it is now," said Alexis Parker. "We still have a long way to go. We have a long way to grow and to learn about one another and the different nationalities. As we come together in this organization to learn that and to come together and to make a lot of things happen in our community, that is when I grow and we all grow together."
The Youth Commission is made up of the top students from Chatham County public and private schools and community organizations.
