yes we can but no...we didn't.
one step forward, two steps back
a work in progress
it's quite simple:
an injury to one is an injury to all.
none of us move forward...
until we all do.

I used a quote from Martin Luther King that talks about courage and making difficult decisions. The quote runs in the background, although is somewhat obscured by the numbers.
Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King. Following emancipation, the dream of many ex-slaves led to the "exoduster" movement to Kansas and the dream of all black communities. One of those communities was Dunlap, Kansas. This is the Baptist Church which was the center of the community. Here is a link describing its history.http://www.legendsofkansas.com/dunlap.html
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial is located in West Potomac Park next to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., United States. It covers four acres (1.6 ha) and includes the Stone of Hope, a granite statue of Civil Rights Movement leader Martin Luther King Jr. carved by sculptor Lei Yixin. The inspiration for the memorial design is a line from King's "I Have A Dream" speech: "Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope." The memorial opened to the public on August 22, 2011.
Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968), an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the Civil Rights Movement, was an iconic figure in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world, and advocated for using nonviolent resistance, inspired by Mahatma Gandhi. Although during his life he was monitored by the FBI for presumed communist sympathies, King is now presented as a heroic leader in the history of modern American liberalism.
At the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, King imagined an end to racial inequality in his "I Have a Dream" speech. This speech has been canonized as one of the greatest pieces of American oratory.
Today in the US we celebrate the birthday, life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. I took this almost 5 years ago, shortly after the monument opened, while taking in the Cherry Blossom festival.

Today is a special day, today was the birth of one of the greatest minds of this generation. Tragically taken from us at such a young age, I believe in these times that it's more important than ever that we look back at his words of wisdom to us, and always apply them to our daily lives and struggles.
“Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles; Cowardice is submissive surrender to circumstances. Courage breeds creativity; Cowardice represses fear and is mastered by it. Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.”
A really special thank you is needed for my amazing model for this Mr. Lucian! Without him this tribute couldn't have been made, thank you so much Lucian!
