The inscription reads Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope.  Just as true today as it was in 1963 when Martin Luther King uttered those words in his infamous I have a dream speech.  Maybe we’ve gone forward toward King’s vision in some ways yet it seems we have a ways to go as a human culture to achieve any sort of sane semblance of the real meaning behind those words.  After 50 years, at least we’ve constructed a monument to the man and his dream.  Here’s to embracing his dream as our dream.
