She Was A Great Woman - Coretta Scott King

She was a woman of strength
She handled great responsibility as her husband fought for our freedom
She was a woman of vision
As she stood by her husband she could see what he saw and continue to stand
She was a woman of courage
She never backed down because of danger that was around
She was a woman of intelligence
Being educated never propelled her to an attitude of haughtiness
She was a woman of passion
Once Martin was gone she continued the quest for the accomplishment of his dream
She was a woman of prayer
Her communication with God let her know that she must carry on
She was a woman of greatness
She never tried to place herself out front
She was a woman of servanthood
She served others while not seeking to be served
She was a woman of determination
She traveled near and far to carry on the legacy of her husband
She was a woman full of life
She loved God, her husband, her children and all mankind until the day she was called home
She was a Great woman

Using articulate vocabulary and powerful insight you've aptly captured the essence of Martin Luther King's wife - Coretta. A beautiful tribute and memoriam indeed. Thanks for sharing Deidre.
Dear Deidre We can not tread in the same foot steps as people like her, but we can tread our own, trying to do our best, and in doing so may meet them somewhere along life’s path. This is a real testimony of someone that really matters to many others. My favorite line: Being educated never propelled her to an attitude of haughtiness Easy to interpret. Love Duncan
