    Rosa Parks's 100th birthday

    I almost missed it -- hadn't heard anything on the news, but then something showed up in my Facebook feed about it. Here's a really good article about her and her legacy. A happy 100th to her in heaven.

    There should be more made of this. She's an important person in history.

    Happy Birthday, Rosa Parks.

    I heard the USPS has released a Rosa Parks stamp.

    From whatever little I read about her, she was a quiet, diminutive woman with a lion's heart. She is an icon.

    How cool about the Rosa Parks stamp. Such a brave woman, I don't know if I would have had the strength to do what she did.

    I included a section about Rosa Parks (and the centenary of her birth) in yesterday's religious education class (coincidentally it fit in very well with the scheduled lesson from the curriculum). I was quite happy to find out that some of my class (grades K-2) already knew about her. to Rosa Parks.

    I'm happy to hear about the stamp, so well deserved. One of my favorite exhibits at Madame Tussand's was Eleanor Roosevelt & Rosa Parks sitting together having a chat. The character in those 2 awe-inspiring women's faces was incredible.
