I often wonder if Americans who have memory of Dr. King share the respect for his life as do those of us who recall Memphis, TN.

In my view this memorial is very appropriate for the memory of Dr. King. One must pause to reflect Dr. King's greatness and how far we have come to the mountain top. Yes, there are higher mountains to conquer.

Absolutely amazing the work and time it took to create such a meaninful monument. Enter going through a path seperating 2 mountains of stone. The center section of the stone is moved forward to carve MLK, Jr. I believe it symbolizes the strength and courage it takes to move a mountain to make a difference.
