Every picture tells a story…some more than others

More than 50 years ago Rosa Parks sat on a bus…and changed history. This week President Obama honoured her memory in a quiet, but memorable way…simply by sitting on a bus, just as she did.

And it is worth remembering his words at her 2005 funeral.

“The woman we honored today held no public office, she wasn’t a wealthy woman, didn’t appear in the society pages,” said Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. “And yet when the history of this country is written, it is this small, quiet woman whose name will be remembered long after the names of senators and presidents have been forgotten.”
