It was 50 years ago today..

Rosa Parks stood up for what she believed. She changed the course of history,beginning the end of segregation. Thank you Mrs. Parks. Jackie Robinson had already started his journey as the first black baseball player, but he had the support of the baseball teams management. Mrs. Parks had no one's backing but the NAACP and that was after the fact.

This small women changed our country in one brief shining moment by making her stand against tyranny and bigotry.We all need to remember her today, If only for a brief moment. We need to remember that all it takes is one person standing up for what they believe and things can begin to change for the better. She showed us that.

That's exactly my point!
You never know the effect one person can have on this world...so when you think you're too small, or not important enough, take a look at the pioneers that came before you~
Everyone makes a difference.
