At yesterday’s program “Dreaming with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr,’ the Long Island Children’s Museum had a room full of families with young children eager to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr Day.

Holding American flags, the young girl, with her dog on a leash, and younger boy watched the Memorial Day Parade on Merrick Avenue – a Norman Rockwell moment right here in Merrick, New York.

It wasn’t until looking at the photos on my computer monitor that I noticed her impressive freckles.
