This morning, I took a few minutes to venture down to the National Mall in Washington, DC, to get a quick look at the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Not only is it historic, with it being both the first monument to a non-president AND the first dedicated to a black person (I don’t like the term African-American), but it is also magnificent. Bayard Rustin would be proud. Of course, I snapped a few pictures.
What is personally amazing is the location. For years, my place of solace, where I go to reflect, or to relax, or to smoke a good cigar is a bench on the Tidal Basin facing Mr. Jefferson, with Mr. Lincoln at my back. Now when I sit at that same spot, I will have Dr. King looking over my shoulder. I couldn’t be more proud!
