I'm so very proud to see the 30' statue dedicated to Dr. MLK Jr. I recognize
Dr. King as the very 1st global citizen which I strive to achieve. The historic
placement, only for Presidents in the past, is also very symbolic in itself.
Dr. King 's statue was placed between President's Lincoln and Jefferson,
Lincoln who freed the slaves and Jefferson a slave owner.
The fact that a Chinese sculptor was chosen to create the wonderful
memorial shows Dr. King is a freedom/peace symbol to the whole World!
MLK is the reason why we the people of this great country have choices in
our leaders like Obama and Herman Cain, to name a few.
1983 President Reagan declared MLK day a National Holiday.
