      Her husband was a superior human and she helped heep his integrity intact.  It is amazing to think of what he could have accomplished had he not been murdered by people afraid of him.  Too bad his followers failed to be leaders in the same direction.

      Cheers

        I Agree!  As Lady day always ended her performances Southern Trees Bear Strange Fruit.  His followers had something to be afraid of.

          Utilizing the active tactic of nonviolence, as opposed to passivity which it is not, Dr. King was able to confront the powers that be with their oppressive tactics, confront the unjust war Vietnam was (let alone how the majority of soldiers were minorities), and articulate the heart and mind of God (which is what a true prophet does) despite being flawed (like the rest of us not perfect). 

          Throughout it all Mrs. King stood by her husband to advance the cause of peace and justice while challenging the war machine and those who were profiting from it monetarily, which robbed the underclass of that which they needed to become economically empowered. 

          She knew full well their marriage might very well end in tragedy, and it did.  Yet she continued to be a good steward of her time and her husband's teachings and life's work after his death.

          May she rest in peace.

            Many prayers and condolences to the King family.  We all owe them (Dr. and Mrs. King) for continuously fighting for civil rights for all people.

             

            Much love from Mel Brown and family, and good luck to all on this system.
