The organizers could not have ordered better weather. The skies were clear, the sun was bright and, for late August in Washington, D.C., the temperature was mild. Like so many of us who were around for the first March in 1963, I was particularly glad to be able to attend on Saturday. The League was a sponsoring organization, so we got to sit at the bottom of the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to watch the numerous inspiring speeches from leaders past and present.
