Rosa Parks


Rosa Parks passed away yesterday at the age of 92-- Oct 24 2005. Her refusal to "move to the back of the bus" on December 1st, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, brought worldwide attention to the Civil rights movement. "The entire black community boycotted public buses for 381 days. Dozens of public buses stood idle for months until the law requiring segregation on public buses was lifted." (source)

Actions speak louder than words. and each of us can make a huge difference by making deliberate decisions in our daily lives.. and exercising our right to an opinion.
