50-years ago.

Wow! That seems long-time ago.

Today is also my oldest’s 29th birthday.

I remember this day 50-years ago quite well. I was 14-years old.

Had been in the U.S. EXACTLY 7-months. That was my first time here.

Did NOT know who MLK was at the time or the significance.

Wow. How time has flown … but, then again, much has changed either!

Once again NO IMAGE of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

His image appeared in the Google Doodle 2012 – 2016
as well as in 2009, 2010 & 2006.

Not having his image is beginning to seem strange.

For a list of the other
“National Historic Parks” in the U.S.


With all of the other news swirling around Trump and Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” book, this did not get that much coverage — on Monday, January 8, 2018.

To be fair, it is NOT as great and monumental as it sounds.

The original site has been a ‘National Historic Site‘ since October 10, 1980.

What Trump did was upgrade its status from ‘Site’ to ‘Park’ and extends its borders to include the Prince Hall Masonic Temple that King once used as an HQ.
