    All the pain and trauma she had to endure in much of her life because of the man she chose to love for the rest of her life... a wonderful example of a great, loving wife. I pray for her family and friends, and hope that in the telling of her history in news reports and stories, that they mention prominently the faith, love and loyalty she showed to her husband (even though he did not always show this to her).

    I only have one beef with the late Mrs. King, and that is that she copyrighted MLK's "I Have a Dream" speech, insisting that her foundation (whatever it's called, I think it might be the King Center) get royalties every time that speech was reprinted or reshown.

    Otherwise, she devoted her life to civil rights and should be honored for it. RIP.
