|Had an opportunity to meet her daughter Yolanda up close at a gala event with the Arts Council of Louisville the year before Yolanda died, as well as watching her work with children at a Louisville urban magnet school named after her father. Death is, to us still living such a sad state of circumstances; yet on both sides of the river of Life they represent a wonderful example of togetherness, kindness and creativity.

Powerful tribute! These lines are exceptional:
"humility of the moon,
but Glory of God."
In them, you pull in the femine and masculine, the balance,
what makes a soul so strong!

|As you remember her, so you become the woman of honor you are meant to be and are. That you espouse the dream she preached is an example of her success. We will always remember her, Nordette.|

|Amazing, init, what becomes a beacon in the eye of the storm... and, yes... just have to agree, it tends to be those imbued with a grace and a quiet strength rather than those who shout the loudest or the longest. "humility of the moon, but Glory of God"... don't that just say it all?! What IS it about grace that pulls like a magnet and yet draws attention not to itself but to the power on which it draws? Meekness is controlled strength and certainly NOT weakness. Just love this. Superb in its economy of words. Bless you and thank you for everything. Kate xx|

|"... I wish I could always reflect it,
the inner peace and drawing back,
humility of the moon,
but Glory of God. ..."
So short and simple but yrt so profound and heartfelt! Excellent tribute for a wonderful gracious lady! Both inspirational and aspirational.
God bless, Nordette.

Your true desire to be a great human being like she was has already set you on the path for becoming this enlightened vision of yourself. The world is in great need of more people like you, Nordette because the storm has not yet passed. This is a tribute that honours the life of someone who is a great example for us all.

|She really was an example for strength and determination. It seems like such an end of an era with her and Rosa Parks gone. Just by their presence alone they got things done. Would that we all had their courage of conviction. They gave of self and asked little in returen except to be heard.
It would be a better world if our politicians acted with the same code of honor.

|Powerful lady. And on the day I stood outside parliament in my first ever protest, with othe Christians. It was against the oppressive racial hatred bill, the govt were expected to easily win. yet they lost by 10 votes, and on the second vote Blair was told it would be a walk over and no need for him to vote..HA he lost by ONE vote.. Ain't the Lord great...That will long haunt Blair...|

|Ah, Nordette, I feel such pride because of your words. Pride in progressiveness and fulfillment, in togetherness, in honor and in the life of a rare woman, and a unique man, of exceptional character, qualities and understanding. Rare, indeed, is such a pairing, paring the world with freedom's call.
Your 'reined-in' personality alone in the soft silence of your reverence in this piece shows me just the beginning of the wondrous homage you pay Ms./Mrs. Coretta Scott King, the rest in in your heart and soul.

|Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner
Yes. Yes. Your quiet tribute shouts volums; strength resonates in each heartfelt word. Thank you--we were indeed blessed to have her in our world. Hopefully, her passing will not have been in vain; the best way to honor her is to treat all people, regardless of "differences," with respect and dignity. Thank you, Poet, friend, for penning what I couldn't.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
