Today I would like to take the time to honor Rosa Louise McCauley Parks, otherwise known as Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks, an African American woman, is often referred to as "the First Lady of Civil Rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement." But Parks is most known for refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white passenger. Parks' actions caused spark to rise within African Americans and the Civil Rights Movement, which eventually led to the change we've come to live by today.
"I have learned over the years that when ones mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done has away with fear." -Rosa Parks
If I shall die before they wake, I pray the Lord my shades are safe.
