Coretta Scott King

Postby Global Citizen » Wed, 01 Feb 2006 10:30 am

Coretta Scott King, wife of renowned American civil rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. died on Tuesday at age 78.

I had the privilege of meeting her once on a flight and she was the embodiment of dignity, grace and so very pleasant. May God rest her soul in peace.

GC, i don't know much about her but it's obvious hers was a life well lived, and which stood for something. eternal rest grant unto her, and may perpetual light shine upon her, amen.
