How Do You Make A Difference?
How do you make a difference? Consider these remarks that President Obama made last week.
On December 1, 1955, our Nation was forever transformed when an African-American seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama, refused to give up her seat on a city bus to a white passenger. Just wanting to get home after a long day at work, Rosa Parks may not have been planning to make history, but her defiance spurred a movement that advanced our journey toward justice and equality for all.
Be that kind of person.
Happy birthday, 100 years of them, to Rosa Parks.
