It was as bright today as it was dreary yesterday. I knew I was not about to get up for an 8 AM dedication ceremony at the Martin Luther King Memorial tomorrow morning, so we decided to take a walk this afternoon and check out all the action. It was very busy, and active, and all sorts of things were going on at the same time. The Occupy Wall Street group was marching, the Unions were chanting, and we couldn't figure out all the other stuff going on in between. But the largest bunch of folks were hanging about the new Memorial- sort of a pilgrimage for many. Just imagine what has passed over these last decades. I'm sure that is what a lot of folks were thinking, and imagining as they sat in every corner of the space to enjoy the simply beautiful afternoon.
