Albany- The words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. interweaved with music.
That's how the King 2005 Celebration honored his work, and the people who follow in his footsteps. "A Symphony of Brotherhood" featured performances by the Albany Symphony Orchestra and the Dougherty High Chorale.
"It's important that we recognize service and hold it up as an ideal to which we should all aspire to make our lives better," said Dream Award Recipient Tommy Coleman, who was Albany's mayor as downtown redevelopment began.
Like the work of a Queen King of Blakely, who fought for fair treatment of people in public housing, or the work of a long-time public servant Coleman, who helped promote progressive change inside the city and the tireless efforts of those who lookout and look after the rights of elderly like Elaine Wilson, who works with the Ombudsman Program through the Southwest Georgia Council on Aging.
"It's very gratifying to see those things come out of the ground and improve our community not only for me and my family but for all families in Southwest Georgia," Coleman said.
"We don't have all the answers, but we try," Wilson said. "We try very hard and this award is just overwhelming to me."
So in the spirit of celebrating the words and work of Dr. King, South Georgia celebrated the ones who help keep the dream alive.
"About the only thing is the knowledge that perhaps you improved the human condition in the community you live in," Coleman said.
"We should help those who are less fortunate than us. Those who have no voice," said Wilson.
But Monday night the ones with the strongest voices lifted up and celebrated people who always work to overcome.
