Mea Culpa for not posting a source (which was my little radio), for not making any more comments about Mrs. King.
Just my thought at the time that this country had just lost someone who always appeared to show great dignity, under the most stressful circumstances. May the Lord have her soul safely out of harm now.
Thread is in BN now. Probably where it should be.
The world has lost a great woman today. With her life she has made the world a better place. My prayers go out to her family.
Clinton must be drooling all over himself this morning! Another chance to go to a funeral and make it all about him!
God Bless her.
She was a true Lady.
Wow. I remember that picture from when I was a child and I didn't know who she was. I pray that she is enjoying her reuninon with her husband and God.
Reflected light has no heat
..who served her country and her late husband's memory quite well.
Served 'her country' exactly how? "husband's memory" = marketing rights and copyrighting his image and every word he spoke, do you mean?
Another opportunity for scumbaggete Hillary to make another one of her now infamous "plantation" speeches.
Not only that, but the Alito confirmation-to-be has been preemptively blown right off the top of tomorrow's front page.
I'll remember her not as the Wife of a Civil Rights leader, but of a tireless, hardworking, relentless Preachers Wife.
God Bless Her.
Just don't ask any of them to show you any evidence of all that "dignity" and "grace"
Okay, what is your problem with Mrs. King? No matter how her husband comported himself, one only had to look and listen to her to see "evidence" of her dignity and grace. If you couldn't see it , its because you are selectively blind. I would at least think, you could find some respect for her in your heart and respect that her children will miss her.
She is finally reunited with her husband, who was taken from her way too soon.
Does this mean that Kennedy can now propose that the Senate postpone the vote on Alito "in deference to the passing of Mrs. King"?
Perhaps you could try to muster some yourself, then.
May she rest in peace.
Well, I'm sure Mrs. King is sorry to inconvenience you. She would have picked another day to die, but G-d was calling.
