Visited the site today and think it is an embarassment to Atlanta, the State of Georgia and the country as a whole, that a man who literally forged the civil rights movement is resting in such a cold, callous tomb amidst shallow concrete wading pools in disrepair. The center is very interesting and even knowing the poor condition of the premises (in particular the area where his tomb is), i cannot fathom that there is not a single plant, flower, foliage to adorn the tomb which sits on a round, cold, concrete platform in the middle if a wading pool that has paint cracking, discolored, dirty and is not operating as it was clearly intended, as a type of waterfall from one pool to the next. Shameful! I took some friends from Europe who were aghast at how we honor the resting place of a national hero.
Having said my piece, the visit is still worth it, if only in honor of the man, Dr. King.
