Washington (CNN) - As the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial was officially dedicated Sunday, speakers called for carrying on King's ideals and values and confronting issues including bullying and social and economic justice for all Americans.
"Nearly 50 years after the March on Washington, our work - Dr. King's work - is not yet complete," President Barack Obama said at the dedication ceremony.
No matter what there always be critics who say something disparaging about a well meaning endeavour. Remember, the most visited and now most recognized memorial in DC, the "Wall"...The tribute to those lost in Vietnam was scorned in the beginning. There really isn't much of a controversy here at all other than a few insignificant quotes gathered by news organizations. The recognition of. Dr. King and his accomplishments is what's important.
