Sir, - As I had the privilege of meeting Coretta Scott King, may I add to
your brief mention of her death (
News, 3 February).
I was impressed by her tranquillity, but particularly I remember her saying
that, despite the pain caused to her by Martin Luther King's assassination, she
was convinced that non-violence whatever the cost was right and the only way to
effect lasting change.
It is a message we need to hear in an increasingly violent world.
