Irene postpones MLK Memorial dedication

CINCINNATI - An emotional journey ended just a few hours ago for people from the Tri-State who were in Washington, D.C. for the dedication of the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.

The bus arrived back in the Tri-State around 1 a.m. Monday morning.

The charter bus was filled with about 35 members from the Church of the Living God on Forest Avenue in Avondale.

The weary passengers had traveled overnight, but you couldn't tell by the smiles and enthusiasm on their faces.

They say they were proud to be a part of such an important moment in history for the King family and the country.

They were among thousands who listened as President Barack Obama gave the keynote address in honor of the civil rights icon.

The pastor of the church, Ennis Tait, says there were a lot of memories made for him and his family.

"The MLK celebration choir was singing his truth is marching on and President Obama and his family were coming through the monuments. They were coming through on his truth is marching on that touched the whole crowd," Tait said.
