"...for the great problems, granting that they let themselves be grasped at all, do not let themselves be held by toads and weaklings..."

- Friedrich Nietzsche

The Right Thing

The passing of Rosa Parks gives pause. She was a woman who simply did the right thing: she took a stand for herself and refused to move to the back of the bus for a man because he was white. Rosa is credited as “the mother of the civil rights movement,” but she was simply taking a stand for her own dignity, doing the right thing.

Rosa Parks should always be remember as a great American, a great human being, who knew she had as much value as any other human being and was willing to take a stand for that truth. How many are willing to take a stand today for a truth? About as many as took a stand for truth in Rosa’s day; few.

She was special, and will be remembered. 92 years of living, that’s a full life.
