Another Shade of Soldier

Dr. Robert Graetz and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We make a horrible mistake and do a grave injustice we don't remember the white men and women who fought along side blacks in the search for equality and freedom. The price they paid as the true nature of their friends, neighbors and co-workers was revealed to them in the struggle may seem to pale in comparison to that suffered by their brothers and sisters, but nothing I have ever read suggested that this was the truth. 

Rev. Robert Graetz and his wife Jean, a Lutheran pastor and wife serving a black congregation in Montgomery, Alabama and becoming friend, confident of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were two such people. Their courage and their humility needs to be honored and acknowledged, even today as they continue the fight for brotherhood and the Beloved Community...
