Check out several snaps of my time spent in the Atlanta, GA area with family this past week:
It was really special to visit the place Martin Luther King Jr. learned important life lessons. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and she shared several anecdotes about the King family and their history as we navigated through the home. Can you imagine doing something so amazing with your life that thousands (maybe even millions at this point) of people flock to see the home you grew up in? I sure can’t!
I also got the chance to see the original Ebenezer Baptist Church, where King and his father served as pastors together. Much like the Kings’ home, the church has been well-preserved. As we sat in the pews listening to a recording of the late minister’s sermons, I almost got chills. It’s a powerful atmosphere and as far as tourist activities go, I highly recommend a visit if you ever find yourself in town.
“We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
What an incredible orator Dr. King was. He had such a strong, confident way in sharing powerful teachings with the masses. He is someone we can all pull inspiration and strength from, especially in today’s tumultuous political climate.
Overall, it was a nice few days. I’m not sure I could see myself living there and putting up with the annoying traffic, but it’s a fun city. Atlanta, I’ll be back! ❤
