A rare example of a person who sat down for what they believed was right.
It seems so strange to think that the entire history of civil rights since Parks may have been different had she been in a better mood that day. But today we honor a person who broke the law - civil disobedience - because it was the right thing to do; or really, in her case, IIRC, she had simply had enough.
I know of her story and what she did, and I admire her resolve. A 92 is a very good age, and it takes wisdom and luck to get there
The second time I've spilled my coffee reading these forums.
She was a good lady indeed.
Did you hear Bush's speech honoring her?
He referred to her as "Rosa Park", couldn't even get her name right. Is there nothing that man can't screw up!
She was very courageous and helped inspire a generation.
She was indeed a great lady. It saddens me to see that we honor people like Rosa Parks, yet in today's society it appears that those who stand up for what they believe in are quickly made a mockery of by the general populace.
92? and I'm already feeling too old and tired!
Anyway I hope we'll get rid of any kind of racist forever.
This event should not instill to people that civil disobedience is actually right in ALL cases.
stop whining, you're not old.
and yes, that would be good, wouldn't it?
All right, grandpa. I think you get old when you're afraid of making risks and you don't try to fulfill your dreams.
Yep,that would be perfect, but first we need to get rid of stupidity and narrow-mindedness.
