Pack Up Your Troubles

I have the highest and sincerest regard for the life and work of the late Coretta Scott King, whose funeral took place today in Lithonia, Georgia. When I read that no fewer than 4 U.S. presidents were in attendance today, I was reminded of a quote I’ve long been fond of. I don’t know who first said it, but it goes like this: “Every nation honors its living conformists, and its dead troublemakers.”

Coretta Scott King worked all her life to make the kind of trouble we need more of.
