WASHINGTON — Hundreds of people gathered in the bitter cold on Monday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a Peace Walk in Southeast Washington.

“If you look out here, you see people from all walks of life, and it’s really making me feel good,” said Haywood Donerson of the MLK Parade and Peace Walk. “Dr. King would feel good today.”

Clergy members led the walk down Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.

“We still remember Dr. King, we remember the dream and we want it to stay alive,” said Dr. Edward Barnett, Bishop and Pastor of Greater Grace Family Ministries Church.

 “We want the whole of Washington, D.C. to become one community and the whole country to become a community,” Barnett said solemnly. “And we can do it with — peace.”
