  • Crime and addiction was a way of life for William (not his real name) for twenty-eight years. He had a normal life up to age thirteen, and then he was out on the street stealing, dealing drugs, or doing drugs. By the time he was fifteen, he had dropped out of school and moved out of his parents’ home. He thought he was an underprivileged kid because his parents only made minimum wage and the lack of money in the family was always a problem to him. His parents both worked hard and tried to provide for the family. But it was not enough for William. He wanted the name brand clothes and other costly things in life. The only way he could get those things was to steal or sell drugs.
  • 1922 – The Lincoln Memorial is dedicated in Washington, D.C. The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon; the designer of the primary statue – Abraham Lincoln, 1920 – was Daniel Chester French; the Lincoln statue was carved by the Piccirilli Brothers; and the painter of the interior murals was Jules Guerin. Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations. The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, The Gettysburg Address and his Second Inaugural Address. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
