"Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream."
Ground was broken today for The King Memorial, which will be the first memorial to a black American on the National Mall.
All manner of Presidents, politicians and celebrities were on hand for the moment.
Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it did make me think.
The Civil Rights Movement stands as a testament to what the masses can accomplish…what everyday women, men and children can do in the cause of social justice. I like to remember that and the power of the individual in a world obsessed with the power of the celebrated and elected.
For me, those of us who inherited the torch are living memorials.
Hopefully, The King Memorial will remind us of the responsibility we all have in protecting our priceless inheritance.
