One small woman...

This morning I awoke to the news of Rosa L. Parks death. Mrs. Parks has been known as the "Mother of the Modern-Day Civil Rights Movement". I bet she never imagined that by not giving her seat to a white man... on a bus in Montgomery, AL... would end up changing the course of America.

Mrs. Parks' determination, self-possession, and her exertions to make Americans aware of the history of the civil rights fight serves a strong message. The past indecent segregation laws... remind us that the struggle for civil rights, racial discrimination and freedom are not completely over. Even though Americans have come a long way, Mrs. Parks' deeper impregnability, guidance, and political independence... against all likelihood... inspire us.... and cause us to remember... there are a lot more improvements to be made. Mrs. Parks' was a true roll model for all and has left behind a legacy that will not be forgotten.

"Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others." Rosa Parks

One small woman... changed history.....

Until we meet again...
