Rosa Parks
On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks took the bus. She sat in the middle section between the white front and the black back. When a white needed a seat in her row, she was supposed to stand and move away. She did not. It was a gutsy move on her part. The driver had her arrested and Martin Luther King Jr. helped organize a boycott of Montgomery's buses.

Ms. Parks died on October 24. Here's to you, Ms. Parks.
I just heard a radio news report that Rosa Parks' funeral lasted 7 hours. If this is true, the good woman must be turning in her grave. I can't imagine that a woman who refused to change seats because she was tired, would ever subject those who loved her to a 7 hour funeral service! Svenmom
