Martin Luther King Day: From a Moment to a Weekend

An extra special greeting of peace to all who cross this URL as we remember Dr. King this weekend.

Obviously, this photo has been borrowed from Picture History, but I'm using it anyway.

It's a moment of rest for the civil rights marchers on August 28, 1963 -- the day MLK delivered his dream outside the Lincoln Memorial.

I love how so many of them have their feet in the water and seem to be just hanging out. There was, of course, no way they could have known then where they'd be in their journey by now, nor can any of know how far we'll progress in another 44 years.

"And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back." - Martin Luther King

See you on Tuesday.
