Past, Present, and Future

I have been meaning to write something about the life and death of Rosa Parks. In the past, I have said that every minority wants to be Jackie Robinson or Rosa Parks. (For some, the comparison to Jesse Owens or Sammy Davis Jr. may be more apt.)

At a basic level, Rosa Parks was someone who took an obvious evil, waited for an opportunity, and challenged the injustice at great personal risk. No one has a right to claim to be the Rosa Parks, but we can all learn from her example.
