President Obama has just, as of this writing, finished a rousing speech to officially dedicate the new MLK Memorial for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And between the President, the crowd, and the moment, the Twitter hashtag #MLKMemorial, “President Obama,” and “Dr. King” were all among the top 10 Twitter Topics for Sunday morning.

What this reflect is the number of people who were activity engaged in watching the event on live television, as well as the enduring message of Dr. King’s life and work, as reflected in the memorial, and in the President’s powerful words today. Words well received on Twitter. Here’s a sample…

Lastly, Georgia Congressman John Lewis posted a great entry on The White House blog on the King Memorial. You can read it here: Lewis on The King Memorial.
