i just like to say that the world should be thankful that a giant such as her did what she done. we are as one in god eyes not man eyes but god. we are all gods children whether any one wants to listen. god wanted us to love one another and live in peace and harmony. but unfortunatley it didn't happen that way. what she did started a movement that will never be forgotten. i didn't grow up in the 60's but i heard how hard it was to be back in the day. with the whites only sign and the colored sign. how everything was divided whites in the front door while blacks in the back. if you ask me we are still this way now. it just not as open as it was back then. look at the justice system. it so divided that black people don't have a leg to stand on. martin luther king paved a way for people who grew up in the late 70's to enjoy what was fought for. Rev. jackson.medgar evers, ralph h. bunche and the list go on should be applauded for standing up what is right. we all go to church we are created equal but in that time they wasnt. thats why she Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat number one she had been working all day feet hurting. and a man told her to get up because he was suppose to sit there. if i was in her position i wouldn't either. if he wanted the seat he should have gotten there first. and second he wasnt no man because a man always suppose to be a gentlemen no matter what his color is. notice how the man doesn't have a name for what he tried to do. we don't glorify the man we rever the Lady who stood strong and fast like Job. and because of her faith she is rewarded with a lifetime of recognition. its amazing how Martin Luther spoke in his I have a dream speech that he fortold how we would unite as one. but what would have him rolling in his grave how once upon a time black people looked out for another and didn't try to kill one another. my stepdad is from the old school if he did something wrong in the community that your neighbor didn't like he got spank and then told to his mother and he got spanked again. now you get shot for reprimanding someone child who's not your own. tell me when did we not give a [email protected] anymore. when we stop caring or believing one another. did all what was faught for equal rights before us was this done in vain. oh what a web this black america have weaved. the leaders are looking down on us probably shaking their heads on what us blacks have become. greed, hatred is all a dirty sin. we have to change for the good or god is going to destroy this world like he did in noah time. will you get on the boat if this tragedy fall upon us or would you be blind like the others perish forever. So i ask anyone who reads this Do you really appreciate the fine upstanding Pioneers as Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King?
