On Thursday, Dec. 7, Atlanta police arrested a 26-year-old who reportedly attempted to burn down the home where Martin Luther King Jr. was born. The home, which is operated by the National Park Service, holds incredible historical significance to many. The police have reported that witnesses saw the woman pouring gasoline on the porch of the property. The police state that they are thankful for the witnesses stopping the person, because if not, the city may have lost the historical building.

While this situation is sad and scary, many have been able to find a positive takeaway. While there are people who do terrible things, there are always people to do the right thing. The bystanders at the home likely saved lives and the building. Their bravery is not only appreciated, but shows in dark times in the world, there will always be good people.

Hello!! I am Olivia Tarvin and this will be my second year on staff! I am on the Senior Ads team and I couldn’t be more excited for the year to come! I chose SPUB because I love to write, design, and educate the student body on things they may not know about! I am so excited to design more this year and create the Senior Ads! Journalism means so much to me because it not only gives me an outlet to write, but it also can be such a good place to learn more about the world, the community and even the school! When I’m not writing a story, designing, or playing with the band, you’ll probably find me outside watching the sunsets/sunrises, kayaking, fishing, camping, or just hanging out with the people I love most!
