MLK Memorial Controversy

An inscription at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial at the National Mall read, "I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness."

It paraphrased part of a speech that Dr. King once gave, but some people felt it misrepresented what he actually said and made him sound arrogant.  The exact quote:  "If you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice.  Say that I was a drum major for peace.  I was a drum major for righteousness."

Officials are planning to remove the inscription altogether, and they don't plan to replace it with anything.  We're wondering whether you think they should - and if so, what would you want included?
