The King Memorial

In commemoration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the National Memorial Project Foundation, Inc. is making efforts to build a King Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The King Memorial will serve as a reminder that, in the words of King, “Every man must decided whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” It will remind America and the world that we are still working and fighting for a society that advocates freedom and justice for all.

However, all Americans and all who have shared “The Dream” must do this. Like the Civil Rights Movement that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and many others fought to make a reality, it must be a collaborative effort from everyone.  Let us think about the future of this country, and about our children who must always know that there were champions of justice and equality. In fact, get them involved by visiting: kidsforking.org.  Also, please visit the King Memorial website to see how you can help make the King Memorial a reality.  Again, we must all help to “Build the Dream.” Peace~
