Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

Many of you know that I live in Atlanta, Gawgah (Georgia for those of you who can't understand our southern drawl) LOL. One of the most important historical figures in Atlanta and the world for that matter is Martin Luther King, Jr. In Atlanta we have the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site which is solely dedicated to this man and all that he has done for us. Within feet of each other you will find:

• Martin Luther King, Jr. Visitor Center
• Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church
• The King Center
• Firestation No. 6
• The birth home of Martin Luther King, Jr.

It’s a nice FREE historical site that gives you a special look into the life of MLK and all that he accomplished as well as the things that influenced him growing up. Did I mention that it is absolutely FREE? My fiancé Walt has lived in Atlanta for almost as long as we have been dating. In the 5 1/2 years that he has lived here, he has NEVER been to the MLK National Historic Site. Shame on me I know. I should have been a better tour guide, but I can say that it was well worth the wait. He was pleasantly surprised by the museum and had a greater appreciation for Atlanta and the man the ultimately represents it.

If you all have not had a chance to visit, this is something that definitely needs to go on your "To Do List." This was the first time I had been back in a loooooooooooong time and also the first time that I got to see Coretta Scott King (wife of MLK) buried next to his tomb stone. Below I have posted pictures from the days events. I am so grateful to have been able to experience such a beautiful monument and look back at the life changing events that took place during his time on earth. I believe in everything that MLK stood for and I know he would be proud of what he did and how he changed the world for the better.
