Bernice King Quote
Let me first say that there are ongoing legal proceedings, so I am limited in my ability to speak about those issues. But I'm fully aware that there is a tendency in all of us, as a society, to romanticize people and their families, especially when their work is bigger than themselves. At the risk of sounding cliché, you can't have rainbows without rain, or roses without thorns. It's unrealistic for people to have great expectations of us and not allow for basic human normalcy. Our conflicts are reflective of our humanity. We are a family like all others and subject to the same struggles and unfortunate consequences with which all God's people contend.
