Rosa Parks RIP

Rosa Parks died yesterday... aged 92. She was the catalyst that started the Civil Rights movement in the 50s and 60s in American - she broke an unjust law and in doing so changed her world.

She was and is our history - A history that I don't know too much about. I want my girls to know who she was and what her refusal to give up her seat on a bus to a white man meant.

It only takes one small candle to light up the darkness - As Apple's ad says "Think Different" Thank God for you, Rosa Parks, and your defiance!
