Martin’s 83rd

A day before the observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day, park rangers placed wreaths at the Washington memorial honoring the civil rights leader, honoring his 83rd birthday Sunday.
Members of King’s family stood beside the  30-foot statue of him as crowds sang “Happy Birthday” at a ceremony.
“We’re celebrating the best of what we are, but also what we must become, knowing that we’ve not arrived there yet,” Martin Luther King III said.
