I Have a Dream

In addition to being Inauguration Day (congratulations, President Obama!), today is also Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  Our great friend Nadeen (who did residency with us at Georgetown oh so many years ago), is here for the long weekend.  We brought "Auntie Nay Nay" downtown to see the new MLK Jr memorial that was built since she last lived here.

Soon enough they'll be removing this misquote (which is actually a paraphrase from a real quote) from the side.  People have argued that it makes him sound pompous.

In school Joseph's class must have been learning about Dr. King, as this came home in his backpack one day.  In case you need a history lesson, here is the short version:

They kids were also asked to think about what dream they would have that had something to do with equality.  Joseph's:  that there would be bigger doors so that everyone would be able to fit through, even giants.  His teacher told me she got a good chuckle out of that one.
