“I Have a Dream” by King Cast in Bronze, Set in Stone, alongside Lincoln’s “Gettysberg Address”

We are investigating the issues involved in a time capsule to be placed below the boulder that will hold the bronze of portions of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” Speech, which will be placed at the end of the Celebration alongside Abraham Lincoln’s “Gettysberg Address.”

Unfinished Business of American Revolution

 Both historic speeches made reference to the “unfinished business” of this new nation founded in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all of humanity is created equal.

Civilian Roll Call on Steps of “Old Main”

We may also have a civiian roll call at the celebration, with our children reading the names of those who joined the Save the Soldiers Home Movement from the steps of “Old Main” before the King ceremony begins.

Seek Trusted Neighborhood Leaders to Collect the $1, $5, and $10 Membership Fees in the Save the Soldiers Home Movement

We are hoping to develop an on-line task force to deal with the money issue pertaining to the Save the Soldiers Home Movement. We need help figuring out what kind of organization should assume responsibility for the contributions, an old one, or a new one. If a new one, a co-op, 501 c3, or ?? So we could use help from some attorneys, accounts, and social enterprisers who can help develop various alternative structures for consideration. The Soldiers Home Citizens Co-Op has a nice ring to me.

We also are looking for neighborhood leaders who are proprietors of establishments with a lot of neighborhood traffic to receive the $1, $5, and $10 contributions and have enough good will that the people have no anxiety about the money going somewhere besides the Soldiers Home Movement. Please e-mail the names of neighborhood “icons” and “leaders” you would trust to handle anywhere from $1 to who knows how much money.

What say?
