"I can assure you that your honouring me is this very meaningful way is of estimable value for the continuance of my humble efforts...
...though I cannot in any way say I am worthy of such a great honour I can assure you, you give me renewed confidence and vigour to carry on in the struggle to make peace and justice a reality."
- Dr Martin Luther King, 1967
