​Dr. King has been one of my heroes since childhood. In 5th grade, not long after he was killed, my favorite teacher Mrs. Nettie Baker, taught us a song I never forgot.  I never heard it since she taught it to us. Perhaps Mrs. Baker wrote it. I looked for it on Google without success.
There was a man, a gentle man.
Who gave up his life for his land.
He reached out his hand
To touch every heart,
For he knew that we’d understand.
This man had a dream that
Some day for all
The bells of freedom would ring.
His dream will become reality,
For his name is Martin Luther King.

“As you honor my father today, please remember and honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded two months after Daddy died. Without #CorettaScottKing, there would be no #MLKDay.” @BerniceKing on Twitter 15Jan2018

I just started following Dr. King’s daughter Bernice on Twitter.  I love the name of her Twitter page  “Be a King”

“When God calls you to a great task, He provides you with the strength to accomplish what He has called you to do. Faith and prayer, family and friends were always available when I needed them…I learned that when you are willing to make sacrifices for a great cause, you will never be alone.”
-Coretta Scott-King
I found Coretta Scott-King’s site today after reading her daughter Bernice’s post on Twitter and wanted to share today this beautiful quote.
