    We all know about people like Martin Luther King and Gandhi standing up for what they believed in and being wiling to make sacrifices for that, but can we think of any more recent examples in the past 10 years???? I am doing a lesson on sacrifice and martyrdom with Guru Tegh Bahadur. I would really like some more recent examples for kids to relate to.
