Rosa Parks: A Great Woman


Rosa Parks died today, aged 92. I have read the news story about this but I confess I was shamefully unaware that the lady who sat on the bus and refused to give up her seat so many years ago in Montgomery had a name.

In a world where bad things happen, where war is still headline news, this ladies courage and conviction should be a timely reminder to us of true heroism. To be persecuted, in your own country, for the colour of your skin makes a mockery of the supposed Christian values of the people carrying it out, is disgraceful and the contribution of people like Rosa Parks should never be underestimated.

YAY! You're alive!

Can we say the same for Sally? :-)
