Thanks Rosa Parks
In Memory of Rosa Parks.
Although she would never take credit for starting the civil rights movement In America in the 1950s Rosa Parks and countless others like her from all over the world have done the world a favor for standing up, pressing on, and inspiring others to do the same. Rosa is indeed one of my heroes. Few of us get to leave our mark on time and she was one that really did it for the cause, despite her stand costing her job and many other hardships. I only hope I have half as much courage in daily life than she displayed.
Ignorance, bigotry and pure stupidity were her biggest detractors and today they have been proven impotent over the battle of time. No, we are still not done. We don't have a wonderful respectful, peaceful world for all to share but we are further along than ever before. Let us all thank Rosa for being there and taking a stand, We need to do the same to keep her honor alive. Rich Shull
