"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

Rosa Parks passed away this evening at the age of 92. Her simple act of defiance against injustice sparked changes that undermined a whole system of fear and hatred.

From an interview here:
Q: Did you think your actions would have such a far-reaching effect on the Civil Rights movement?
Parks: "I didn't have any idea just what my actions would bring about. At the time I was arrested I didn't know how the community would react. I was glad that they did take the action that they did by staying off the bus."

May we all have the courage to follow her example in our daily choices.
