*** Here are a few words of wisdom:
In 1955, an African-American seamstress named Rosa Parks sat in a
bus in Montgomery, Alabama, and quietly refused to give up her seat to
a white man. She was arrested. Her arrest started the Civil Rights
movement. Her courage changed American history . Rosa Parks followed
her heart and took a stand for what she knew was right.
American poet and writer Ralph Waldo Emerson says:
Heroism feels and never reasons and therefore is always right.
In other words, heroes act from their hearts.
Do you remember the root meaning of the word courage? It comes from
the Latin cor, which means the heart. Rosa Parks acted from her heart-
with courage-and she became a great American hero. Every time you
act from the heart, you are being courageous. Today, remember Rosa
Parks and be courageous enough to do what's right.
**With something to think about, Make it a great day..or not. The choice is yours.
