“With the death of Coretta Scott King, we have lost a strong and dignified voice for a better America. Despite great personal loss, she remained committed to the belief that our common values of liberty and equality leave no room for discrimination of any kind.
“While we mourn her passing, we must remember that the movement she championed is never finished. We can all honor her legacy by continuing to fight for freedom, equal justice, and tolerance. Her life will continue to be an inspiration, and remind us all that our everyday actions have the power to change history.”
