Wonder full Stevie, a favorite image

October 16, 2011

I saw something on the news yesterday that I can’t stop thinking about. I’ve been a little tender around the edges for some reason anyway lately, but this one cracked me open. They hoisted the blind Stevie Wonder up in a crane so that he could feel the face of the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. It makes me choke up and drop some tears every time I think of it. Who are these people who would think of such a beautiful thing and pull it off? It is so full of heart I can hardly bear the sense of beauty it evokes. I am so glad I grew up in a world that has Stevie Wonder in it. And a world that built this memorial to one of our great heroes.

That’s it. I wanted to share the image and the love in it.
