“We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today is Dr. King’s birthday. One man that dared to change the world through peaceful resistance. Yet, often sometimes lost in the shadows shines the life of Mrs. Coretta Scott King. What I find admirable about Mrs. King is that she courageously chose not to become a victim of her husband’s assassination. Rather, she determined to further his legacy becoming a civil rights activist and power player in her own right. With perseverance, Mrs. King fought for more than a decade for Dr. King’s birthday to become a national holiday. A mother of four, her life demonstrated moms can become world changers through our actions and what we teach our children.
Thanks Mrs. King.
