Weekend assignment

Weekend Assignment #12: Thanks to time travel and invisibility, you can be on the spot for any important event of the last 100 years (1905 onward). Which important historical event do you choose? As a twist, if you actually were at an important historical event, you can't pick that one. Why? Because you were there already. What, you want to be there twice? Think of the paradox!

I'd choose to be at the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963, to hear Martin Luther King give his famous speech.  Even today, when I hear a recording of those famous lines, I get goosebumps (click HERE to listen to it yourself).  Last summer when I stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial with my friend, Joanna, I couldn't help thinking about Martin Luther King saying, "I have a dream!"

Mosie, I love to hear those words of Martin Luther too.  I wasn't at the Lincoln Memorial but I remember hearing it and seeing it on the TV.  I would have loved to hear him preach a sermon.  .........Sam
