Taking a Stand... By Keeping Her Seat

Yes, I know, it's been forever. We continue to work hard. But tonight, a short aside:
I just heard on the news that Rosa Parks passed away. Ms. Parks, of course, needs no introduction. As the woman on that Alabama bus half a century ago, she helped ignite a movement that changed our country for the better, for folks of all races. A long-time Detroit resident, Ms. Parks will be terribly missed... but her lesson lives on. Rich or poor, great or small, whatever color you are... standing up for what is right is something all of us must do.
Who knows... you might just change the world.
Rest in peace, Ms. Parks.

Stand up to the Man, my sista!

Another piece of living history, gone. At least she wasn't assassinated or killed in some freak accident before her time.
