Washington, D.C. – Memorials: Martin

Well, between Arlington and the other stops we’d made, I’d had enough of war memorials. Washington D.C. is rife with monuments to our wars.  We’ve got to do something about that.

Still, there was one more memorial I had to see.  Not technically on the Mall, it’s a little tricky to find if you’re not careful.

Like the Vietnam memorial, this one is simple, with snippets of Dr. King’s speeches and writings surrounding his towering statue. I was deeply moved.

Many stood in the shadow of his presence with much happiness and pride.

School children, living his dream.

This couple took many shots. They wanted it just right.

Big smile.

Indeed.
