MLK. Memorial Groundbreaking

From CNN
5,000 people braved chilly, rainy weather to watch President George Bush break ground on the national memorial for the late, great civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It's being built near the Lincoln memorial where King gave his monumental, "I Have a Dream" speech in the nation's capital. Civil rights leaders and former President Bill Clinton also attended the ceremony. Clinton signed the legislation that created the memorial during his presidency. The monument should be completed by 2008.
