The National Cathedral in Washington has a special place to honor those who have taken significant, profound, and life-changing actions in the fight for human rights and social justice. It’s called the 'Human Rights Porch,' and within the last year, two images in stone have been added - those of U.S. civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks, and Novel Peace Laureate Mother Teresa.
