Willie Williams always sat hunched up all day staring blankly at those who once gave him so much hope, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. His wife was lying in bed - sick and debilitated from hunger. She couldn’t afford special diabetic food as they only received $72 a month. They were lonesome and forsaken, forgotten by society in a world of emptiness only interrupted by the cheerless dripping of rain through the ceiling. In 1978 I saw them the last time when I came to give them the book with their pictures in.” - - - Waynesboro, GA - September 1975
