A life ends

"Each person must live their life as a model for others."

Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks is one of my heroes. I can't fathom a time or place when it would have been okay to order a LADY to give up her seat for any man. And yet, it not only happened, it was an every day, ordinary occurance.

It's a very sad day. The world has lost someone that we should all respect and look up to.

Rosa Parks was quoted as saying that she really just wanted to get home from work that day. But it's often in the most ordinary of situations where history is made. If only more people were willing to make a simple, strong stand in their everyday lives, we might have a one hell of an extraordinary world.

"She stood up, by sitting down"

everyone can learn by this - the smallest action or non-action can cause ripple effects and even waves of change.
