"Take the first step in faith," Martin Luther King, Jr. Told us. "You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."
Inspired by his eloquence and his moral courage, ordinary Americans took the first step in faith, and then more and more steps up the staircase to justice and opportunity.
As our nation marks the 48th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on August 28 by dedicating a memorial to Dr. King on the National Mall, we at AARP understand that the journey to fulfill the promise of our country is far from over. We can see the whole staircase, but we haven't gotten to the top yet.
