What an amazing woman!
Rosa Parks Day, December 1, 2015, should be Rosa Parks Month. What an awesome lady to stand up for herself. And, so brave! Those were anything but fair or just times. And, those were times where, beneath the calm, bubbled unrest and anger and uncertainty.
Did I mention her bravery?
I believe this fine lady, at the age of 43, was not only amazing for fighting for her right as a black person to sit where she wanted on that bus, but for being a strong enough woman to push down any fear she may have had at the time to do the right thing and take a stand.
Rosa Parks may be the iconic original civil rights activist for the rights of black men and women in America, but to me she’s a hero… a strong woman… a strong person, who had the courage to stand against the normal and do, instead, what was right and just.
For me, remembering Rosa Parks today seems a little small…
so, instead, I will choose to carry that historical act to memory each day.
