It's been so wonderful to see him smile more this week since starting the steroid treatment for the acne fulminans. He has been so happy to be outside for the first time in months!
Brittany and Max walked around and read all the quotes and timelines on the monument. Max told her he the ones he liked.
Daddy reads this one to Max every year. It's some of MLK's most recognized quotes.
Max waited his turn to get close to the memorial. It was busy yesterday because the weather was so nice. It's always so interesting to see the people from all walks of life who stop to pay respects.
Max made this painting and wanted to take it with him to the memorial. It was his word for the day. DREAM.
The man with a dream with the Max with a dream.

Dedicated to every person past, present, and future who has committed his or her life to the struggle for freedom, justice, and peace for all.
Whatever career you may choose for yourself—doctor, lawyer, teacher—let me propose an avocation to be pursued along with it. Become a dedicated fighter for civil rights. Make it a central part of your life. It will make you a better doctor, a better lawyer, a better teacher. It will enrich your spirit as nothing else possibly can. It will give you that rare sense of nobility that can only spring from love and selflessly helping your fellow man . Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for human rights. You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.
-- Martin Luther King, Jr. , 18th April, 1959
