There are very few people who can say that their actions and conduct changed the face of the nation, and Rosa Parks is one of those individuals. Where would we be as a country without her? Too many times, we cast the title of hero on those who are undeserving. But in Rosa Parks, I feel it can be said that she was truly a rare American hero. As a nation, we owe her a debt that can never be repaid. May God bless her soul and may she rest in peace. May she serve as an inspiration to us all and remind us that right will always defeat might.
"I would like to be known as a person who is concerned about freedom and equality and justice and prosperity for all people. Each person must live their life as a model for others."-Rosa Parks
