Coretta Scott King

Coretta Scott King, Human Rights Leader and widow of Martin Luther King, Jr. died during the night last night. Speaking of the strength of character she exhibited following her husband's death, she once said:

"I think you rise to the occasion in a crisis," she once said. "I think the Lord gives you strength when you need it. God was using us - and now he's using me, too."

Always a lady. Always true to her beliefs. A brave and honorable woman. Rest in Peace.
