"So what do you guys want to do to celebrate Martin Luther King day guys?" I asked.
"How about we paint stuff and write words on it like peace and dream, yeah dream, because Dr. King had A LOT of dreams." Jack said.
"You mean like make a sculpture?" I said.
"Yeah, and it has to say 'treat everyone the same'. " and with that he was off to gather supplies for our peace sculpture.
Lucy insisted the felt tiger be added, maybe he is the protector of peace, I do not know.
Josiah wanted flowers, I added the dove, everything about it was pure and lovely. Each person making their own contribution. All I could think about was how much I wanted to see Dr. King's dreams come true, in the flesh, the next day.The idea seemed almost impossible, like my very own dream.
We left to eat lunch with Jorge and by the time we got there I knew we had to go. 3 hours and 4 train tickets later, I gathered my crew and we were off to Washington D.C..It was completely crazy, so spontaneous, the perfect way to end a day held to honor a man who believed anything is possible.
Where are you watching the events today? and with who? Tell us in the comments.
