Worthy of remembrance

Mom and I toured the Martin Luther King, Jr., memorial Monday when it opened to the public in a kind of soft launch before the official dedication this weekend. It isn’t as grand as the Lincoln, Washington or Jefferson monuments in scale, but it has its own power.

It’s a small garden along the Tidal Basin, edged by a semi-circle of granite etched with quotes from perhaps the greatest American conscience, moral lamppost and orator ever.

Near the focal point of the circle is a 30-foot bust of sorts carved into white stone of King.

Certainly a grand honor and King was certainly worthy of nothing less.

Take heed
