The courage to do the right thing...
...does not come easily, and it does not come without a price. We should always remember that, and we should always remember with the greatest respect those true heroes who have the courage needed to stand up for what they know to be right, even in the face of their own government.
Rosa Parks, who passed away last night, had the courage to face the consequences for doing the right thing. In the process, she proved that a single person, doing the right thing, can change the world for the better. I can think of no higher praise, and no better legacy, than that.
