To continue with Rosa Parks from our educational video on her life yesterday, here are 5 quotes of wisdom from her. Enjoy!
I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.
I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free… so other people would be also free.
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… No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.
Each person must live their life as a model for others.
Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome.
