A lot of people—including local Congressional candidate Pramila Jayapal and Washington Governor Jay Inslee—have been reflecting on the above quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. today.

Maybe you've already seen it on your Facebook and Twitter feeds, but if you want to see it in person it's there, as always, at the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Way and Cherry Street in the Central District.

As we reported last year, the mural was recently touched up by artist James Crespinel, who told The Stranger:

From the first few hours, I was besieged with locals wanting to know what the hell I was doing messing with their wall. Some were downright angry. Everyone was fearful MLK was coming down. The personal stories of how the piece had affected their lives were truly touching: I had a sweet Muslim girl crying in my arms because she thought he was coming down. When she found out I was the original artist bringing the piece back to life, she totally broke down because it had been so important in her life. Crazy moving moments... But the thing that struck me was that people kept saying we need this now more than ever with all the stuff going on.
