Louise B Carter-Ping
August 10, 2019
Mrs. Carter was a lovely lady whom I saw pretty often over the last 50+ years. She was unfailingly kind, sweet, and friendly, and it was always a joy to see her. My most profound memory of her stems from the time of the MLK assassination in 1968 -- she was my Sunday School teacher at West End Christian Church. I don't recall her exact words, but they were something like, "Boys and girls, a terrible thing has happened, and the eyes of the world will be on Atlanta next week for Dr. King's funeral. Lots of folks will expect people here to act badly, but even little folks like you can go a long way toward proving that expectation wrong. You can do it by being as nice as you can be to everyone you meet, and by not joining in any bad talk or thoughts about Dr. King and the folks who loved and followed him." That remains a wonderful memory from my childhood -- how the "village" my parents had chosen to help raise me imparted the same gentle beliefs and world view they were imparting to me. Had really wanted to come to the memorial today, but alas, my mother is homebound now, and her needs prevented my doing so. Dan Langford, Jr. - Brooks, GA.
