Shortly before today’s historic events began in Washington , Dr.Palace Pillow McCuthen of Nashville Tennessee said, “In Dr. King’s last speech he said I’ve been to the mountain top, I’ve looked over, I’ve seen the Promised Land, I may not get there with you, but we as a people will get there………. I feel like he knew he wouldn’t see this but he knew this day would come. Well now it’s here“.
Dr. Pillow-McCutchen is present in Washington today with more than two million fellow citizens attending the inauguration of President Barack Obama and witnessing an important moment in American history.
