Embrace Unveiling on MLK day

Attending the historic unveiling of The Embrace statue.

I can’t remember when I first heard about the creation of this amazing statue that would be located in Boston, Massachusetts but I remember thinking, I want to be there when they unveil it.

That wish came true on Friday, January 13, just a few days before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I wanted my family to attend for so many reasons so we made it happen. My oldest son took an Uber and met my husband, my youngest son and I in Boston and we walked over to the event. I did not know you had to have tickets to be very close to the unveiling because they had a lot of dignitaries in attendance including MLK III, his wife and daughter. They had music and many motivating speeches by local politicians including the amazing Ayana Pressley. There was so many people from all different backgrounds that were outside the main area that just wanted to celebrate and witness the unveiling. It was a beautiful sight to see.

We will visit the statue again many times in the future to rejoice and reflect. I will share more photos when we visit again and can capture more photos of this amazing statue.

I highly recommend that you take a trip and see this amazing monument in person. It will not disappoint.

Have a lovely day!
