MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

This weekend history will be made as our country celebrates and memorializes someone who contributed greatly to our history as a nation. That someone is Martin Luther King, Jr.

On Sunday, President Obama will deliver remarks at a ceremony commemorating the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial in Washington, D.C.  This day and memorial will honor Dr. King's national and international contributions and vision for all to enjoy a life of freedom, opportunity and justice.

It will be the first major memorial along the National Mall dedicated to an African-American, and to a non-president.

Martin Luther King, Jr. would have been 82 today and am sure would been humbled by this lasting memorial honoring his life and the thousands of people that made it happen.

In 1963, Dr. King delivered one of his most memorable speeches "I Have a Dream" in Washington, D.C.  How fitting 48 years later in Washington this memorial will be unveiled in the same city allowing others to be inspired by all this man accomplished.

We appreciate your feedback.
