Hey Guys, I hope you all had a wonderful mother’s day! Since this was my first mothers day I wanted to tell you all how great and emotional of a time I had!!!!
My family traveled to Washington, DC for my Sister’s graduation from Howard University! I had previously been to DC before so I knew what to expect as far as the sightseeing and the traveling, but we also went to Baltimore for some good ol seafood, and to Georgetown for a little shopping.
This was the first time my son had ever been out of town, and he had a blast! I was so happy that he and my husband enjoyed themselves. It was an overall great trip.
So, On the last day before we went home we decided to go visit the MLK Memorial. For those of you who know me, you know that I have an affinity for black history. I am very proud of my heritage, and I love being African-american. This was a must-see for me.
When we got there, I was in complete awe! They had him standing so high, with his arms crossed and a sermon(Supposedly) in his hand. They also had his quotes around the monument that really added a special touch.
What was so amazing for me, was that out of all the Notable African Americans who helped in the fight against racism a young pastor from Atlanta, Georgia who made a difference and risked his life for us to have equality, has a monument with Presidents of the United States. His life made that much of a difference that he was chosen to be honored by a monument. Martin Luther King was only 39 years old when he died, he was in his prime. Looking over my life as a 30 year old, if i could make the world a better place by using the word of God, and love for all mankind in my opinion it would only amount to half of what Dr. King did for us now.
It is my hope that we all take a look at ourselves, and make a decision in our hearts to live out the legacy that Dr. King left for us to do. LOVE.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
