R.I.P.

Coretta King, We miss you already.

I cannot imagine how it feels to have the one you love, taken brutally from you, while your love for each other was in full bloom. Most people would have become bitter. You didn’t, and we loved you for that.

I remember that rally for peace, in 1967, San Francisco, Kezar Stadium, when you spoke to a full stadium of mostly white, spoiled, hippies who were anti-war, but didn't have a clue about peace. I was there; I remember it like it happened yesterday. Country Joe and the fish sang their hit song……it was that smart-alecky anti-war song. Then you rose to speak to the crowd. Your husband was speaking at another anti-war rally, so you were there without him. You spoke of peace that day, not in the same way as most of the radicals of that day. You were never radical, I remember your speech that day, you spoke about peace; world peace, peace in America and peace within our self.

You. Coretta were a lady, and we can see why Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wanted you to be by his side forever. Cruel fate robbed both of you, but now gentle woman, you can stand side by side through eternity with the God you both loved, and the heavenly hosts.

Where'd you find that picture. It is beautiful, but I had never seen it.
It says more than I could say, in a silent way.
