Still Learning To See

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Family-2909

Several years ago Liz and I were fortunate to visit Montgomery and see this stunning memorial to the martyrs of the civil rights movement at the Southern Poverty Law Center, here being viewed by a father and his your son who were also visiting.

Family-2084

The memorial to some of the many, including Dr. King, who gave their lives in the struggle.

I find today a good day to remember both how much has changed and how much more remains to be done until we are “free at last!”

Perhaps we can find courage to continue the struggles by once again listening to Dr. King speaking—still inspiring and brave all these years later. This is a link to his famous “I have a dream” speech.

Family-6409

My father-in-law, now 95, sits at the center of our amazing family, surely a sign of some of the changes that have come to be in the past half century. And, yes, there is much left to be done but I’m constantly inspired by those around me.
