Happy 80th Birthday, Dr. King

Today is the official day, and as such, the State of Indiana held their celebration at the museum today.  Besides Gov. Mitch Daniels, there were dignitaries from the Indiana Civil Rights Commission and various King Commission awards were handed out.

My personal favorite was the ‘Sound Machine’ choir from College Park Elementary School, who sang “I Have a Dream” and “Let Freedom Ring”.  Apparently the governor enjoyed it, as well.  He always likes to get in there with the kids and talk with them about their grades, homework, and today, music.  Apparently he recognized one of the students as “my harpist”…from some other activity where they’d been introduced.  How gratifying for her! She’s with him on the right in this picture…
