Caught this wood stork in silhouetted flight against a cloudy sky...its stark and awkward grace soars with a gentle reminder of freedom. Today marks the day we celebrate and remember the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his remarkable orations of peace, justice, opportunity, equality, and freedom.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every tenement and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old spiritual, "Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr. , "I Have a Dream" speech, August 28, 1963
