"I was here in 1963 during the march on Washington, D.C.," Norman Freeman Anderson said. "This is a monumental moment for me because I’m reliving history. It’s a beautiful occasion to come here today to see the unveiling. We’ve come a long way and we’ve got a long way to go. It’s wonderful to see all the supporters here. We are concerned about the future. What’s going to happen to our children and grandchildren?" said Anderson, who came from New York City. "We’re most concerned about the economy. We hope and we pray to God that there will be a change. People here are very concerned about life in America. The 'Dream' has really not been realized. We’re hoping and praying that it will because that’s what Dr. King would have wanted."
