Famous people who die for what they believe in share certain traits. Although they know their life is threatened, they still stand up for what they believe to be right, they stand up for truth. Truth however means change. Like Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr, or Lincoln the Mirabal sister's knew they were confronting the status-quo that had the power to kill them. Trujillo would kill them but he also made them martyrs. Like other great people who gave their lives for what was right, the sisters became an idea that would become stronger over time and ideas are bullet proof.
