Rosa Parks 1913-2005

The tired woman who started the civil rights movment. I have no great insight into this woman and many things will be said about her in the next few days. A memory that must not be forgoten, an act as simple as not wanting to get out of her seat for a white man half her age, sparked a revolution in this nation. If that isnt proof that one person can make a difference then I dont know what is.
I always liked hearing her say that it wasn't civil disobedience it wasn't a protest of an unjust law, she was just tired after a long day at work and she didnt feel like going to the back of the bus.
Lets aways keep her memory alive, fight against the powers that be, even if its only because we dont feel like putting up with them anymore.
