My conversation with Martin Luther King's daughter about loss, hope

This past April I invited Martin Luther King's youngest daughter, Dr. Bernice King, to speak at the National Grief & Hope Convention.  The conversation we had far surpassed my expectations from a speaker, and I was honored and humbled to have an opportunity to sit down with Dr. King for an intimate discussion about her life.

Weathering seven family tragedies between the age of 5 and 25, Dr. King was charming yet candid about the lifelong effects of her loss and sorrow.  She also shared what brought her comfort and hope. 

I wrote about the conversation in Glen Beck's national network TheBlaze.  Here are the links to both parts.  "Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light."  - Helen Keller
