Rosa Parks

I was fortunate enough to see the funeral procession of Rosa parks from the Metropolitan AME Church through DC yesterday. Her hearse was followed by an empty vintage Metro bus and 2 other contemporary Metro busses full of family and friends. It gave me goosebumps, and it brightened my day to think on the legacy that one tiny woman could leave behind.

I found this quote, which I particularly liked:

"I am leaving this legacy to all of you ... to bring peace, justice, equality, love and a fulfillment of what our lives should be. Without vision, the people will perish, and without courage and inspiration, dreams will die."

I hope we can build on and maintain the results of all her hard work.
