A march to remember

San Luis ObispoSeptember 2, 2013 

As a retired person, I was afforded the luxury of the time to watch the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington and the Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech Wednesday. I spent much of the time tearing up, both in pride over the ideals of this country that this march was intended to realize, and over the failure of our society to achieve them.

This march was one of the most significant events of the civil rights movement, and I was deeply disappointed to find that The Tribune’s coverage of this commemoration was buried in the inner pages of the paper. The Tribune should have done more to educate those too young to actively remember this.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
