“We hear all about these overwhelming things with presidents and people are like I’m not going to be president, I’m not going to do that, but Molly Brown was just a good person,” stated the second grade teacher Shannon Hughes. “Rosa Parks was just a good person. Martin Luther King just a good person and we’re just celebrating being good people. You don’t have to be this big superhero to be a good person. That’s what all my class is learning.”
