t is for touch

We must combine the toughness of the serpent with the softness of the dove, a tough mind and a tender heart.

Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) minister, civil rights activist

tattoo tuesday continues.

today's tats are tertiary to the hands touching the new martin luther king jr. memorial and how i believe we as a people have a new touchstone for human rights and peace in the nation's capital.

i visited the memorial with my mother a couple weeks ago - let me tell you, the new monument is a powerful, touching tribute to a truly great human being.

Thank you for the wonderful slide show mouse. As Alan said: "next best thing to a visit".
I liked the photo of hands too. Such different "models", both so beautiful.
