Politics and the state of the world were very much on our minds. Walking by the glass panels, with the sound of water pounding all around, we read the words of Dr. King. We were indeed moved in a setting that felt so very spiritual. So very hopeful. A "person-oriented society." It seems so simple. So obvious. Yet, at times so unattainable. Oh these days of ours and all of their -ISMs. But the way we can be torn down, these words set in granite build us up. And the legacy of a man causes us to stop, reflect on where we've been and dream about where we still need to go. - Justin This image was originally posted at Another Limited Rebellion.
