I am only forty years old, but when I think of Mrs. King, I think of a quiet strength. She is a huge advocate, but always with grace and dignity. Many of our run of the mill civil rights advocates would do well to use a little of her wisdom.
Her children have been a blessing to society instead of the bitter kids that many of the martyred become. They are educated and well spoken. People listen to them because their only agenda is seeing the legacy of their father carried out.
It seems that their mother has taught them well that, “Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated.”
What can we learn from her in this generation that is more concerned with itself instead of the freedoms of others? We can learn acceptance, diligence, and to stand our ground when some in society want to make us feel devalued. We should be able to hold our head high and sing proudly “We Have Overcome!!!"

What are your thoughts on Mrs. King?
