    Civil Rights pioneer, Rosa Parks, is dead

    I think God has a special place for her in heaven, right up in front.

    I'd like to commend Mrs. Parks for her courage.

    Over here in Europe, I think she must have been the first female American person I have heard about in history class and ever since, remembered her name.

    I can still recall how we learned about what she did on the bus in fourth grade...it was in music class and we learned a song about segregation.

    So....here are my condolences from over here. I'd like to finish by saying that all men and women are alike, regardless of color, race, religion etc.

    Absolutely was Mabel. Just beautiful. Can you imagine what stories she had to pass down to her children, grandchildren and beyond? I just love hearing wonderful stories from past generations. In the jury room, there's a thread asking why each of us was here. How lucky Ms. Parks was to have been able to answer that question.

    One little raindrop, one giant ripple.

    Rest in Peace, Rosa Parks.

    Living in the Detroit area, I will mention that there have been many memorials here on TV to Ms. Parks.

    If anyone is ever in the area, make sure you Visit the Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village, where the Bus (completely restored) is on display

    I'm watching Rosa's memorial service right now on CNN. Really beautiful tributes - Oprah gave a really nice one; huge huge number of people there.

    It's showing pictures of her through her life; wow, I didn't realize she was such a beautiful woman.

    People Magazine also has a good story on her this week, that also refreshed some of my memory.
