Martin luther King Jr National Memorial is a must see in Washington DC.
From the long walkway where many of Dr. King's famous words are inscribed on stone to the actual monument one experiences awe and inspiration that such profound words can flow from one living under such desperate conditions!
The inscription on stone is apt ,depicting the lasting ,enduring , permanence of Dr King's words.
The actual monument is powerful: very tall slabs of stone from which the center piece emerges with the very life like sculpture of Dr King. The words "out of a mountain of despair a stone of hope" are engraved on the stone mountain behind the center piece with Dr King's image.
It's meant to be rustic and overpowering suggesting the extraordinary obstacles Dr Martin Luther King surmounted to live his dream which is still being fulfilled in America today!
It is worth the effort to view the monument.
