As I watch the funeral of Rosa Parks I can’t help but to think of the legacy she leaves behind. Some of the most important changes in the world start with one person who stands up and says No to power. She was as ordinary of a person as anyone can be, but she came to a point where she had had enough and wasn’t going to take it anymore. A simple act that changed the world. We are reminded that sometimes it is far more convenient to just let things go and go along to get along. We should not only honor Rosa Parks by celebrating her life but honor her by refusing to give up our seat when the powers that suppress us today want us to move to the back of the bus. We too can change the world by saying no to injustice.
