|We met at the reflecting pool where Dr. King and his wife are buried.|
|The Eternal Flame|
|Dimples listening to I Have a Dream.|
|Photographing their dreams.|
|A timeline of Mrs. King's life.|
Next we went to sit in Ebenezer Baptist Church. The church is no longer used, but they have sermons by Dr. King playing so that you can sit and imagine what it might have been like to be there at the time. I loved both of these pictures and couldn't decide which to use, so you get to seem them both.
|Dimples was very moved by this display and his loss of freedom|
for fighting for a right that seems so obvious to her.
|The most powerful image, in my opinion.|
We had lunch in front of a beautiful mural before heading back to the car. There was still plenty to look and talk about as we went.
I have to say this was an excellent start to the new year. Everyone at The King Center was friendly and helpful. The kids each got a beautiful magnifying glass as a souvenir and Robotson got a complimentary pencil and pin after looking longingly over the items in the gift shop several times. There were also some super funny quotations made by Dimples during the tour. One was after entering the Gandhi room and she says "Gandhi doesn't look so good." Another was when referring to Dr. King's death, she said "I'm sorry that the king died, but at least the queen lived."
Afterwards we met at a vegan bakery in town for a little treat before the long drive home. I highly recommend Dulce Vegan Bakery if you are ever in Atlanta. Super yum!!
