Things We Fancy: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial

Relief statue of Dr. King himself @ The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in D.C.

Pictured above is the latest dedication to the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The 30 ft. statue is located in the center of a memorial dedicated to Reverend King in the National Mall in Washington. The memorial is four acres large. Today this grand place is open to the public. There is mild controversy over the 'black' leader's statue being sculpted by a 'chinese' man. I'm not going to get into details but I will say this, it was Dr. King's dream for people to only judge a man by his character. Anyway, I honor the great Martin Luther King Jr. for his courage to have such a dream in the day and time he lived. I am thankful that he lived and so should everyone in America. May his legend continue to live on through his new memorial and this blog post. =)
