The Front of the Bus Will Never Be the Same

Bon Voyage, Mrs. Parks. Bon Voyage. In the dictionary under courage, they should have a picture of Rosa Parks:
Mrs. Parks was 42 when she committed an act of defiance in 1955 that was to change the course of American history and earn her the title "mother of the civil rights movement."

..."At the time I was arrested I had no idea it would turn into this," Mrs. Parks said 30 years later. "It was just a day like any other day. The only thing that made it significant was that the masses of the people joined in."
