In April, 1968, M.L. King was assisinated. We were all put on alert and later that night our Relief went into a section of town (with loaded rifles) to help prevent any more burning/looting. As the sun rose the next morning, several ladies from the area visited us with warm rolls, etc. to thanks us for protecting them and their property. 2 months later R.E. Kennedy was killed and our RElief worked the funeral. About 4 months later I received a pesonal letter from Ethel Kennedy, thanking me for being at the funeral.
