WE ALL HAVE DREAMS

THANK YOU !

REV. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR,

If it had not been for the dreams of Martin Luther King, Jr. and those who came before and after him, some of our dreams may not have come true.  I hope we will continue to go forward and not backwards.

I was in Washington D.C. last year and took these photos of the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial, located on the National Mall.

The new monument honors Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy. The larger-than-life granite statue of King is set inside a four-acre promenade and showcases some of the most memorable passages from his speeches.

MLK: “Make a career of humanity, commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.”
