"People always say that I didn't give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn't true. I was not tired physically or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me being old the. I was forty-two. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving up." -Rosa Parks
The Things A Brave Could Want...
Yes, Rosa Parks was a courageous, civil rights leader, but she wasn't always a fearless woman. Once upon a time, she was a fearful little girl. Rosa McCauley used to be afraid of the Klu Klux Klan., which any black person would. Rosa Parks wanted little girls not to be afraid like she was. She knew what fear could do and I think she wanted little children to be happy, any race they were.
Rosa Parks was among some a hero, and among others legend, and among another a person who just wanted to be free.
