In Memory of Rosa Parks

Tuesday October 25, 2005
In loving memory of Rosa Parks,A modern Saint whose light of justice and freedom will shine on for years to come.  Detroit, Michigan was lucky to have her.  She was an outstanding citizen since the late 50's. Born February 4th, 1913.  Arrested at age 42 in Alabama.  She sat down and stood up for Justice for our world and herself.  What a serene and quiet lovely lady.  With great inner strength and determination.  She died peacefully in her sleep at 92.
God bless you Rosa Parks!

We certainly need to have more people with the spirit of Rosa Parks in our world today.
Thanks for taking the time to do this entry, Derek. I've been thinking about her today but I didn't take the time to honor her, as you have.
XOXO

She was a TRUE American.  I hope there are more Rosa Parks out there in all minority groups.
