A very happy birthday to ROSA PARKS, born on this date in 1913.

“I had given up my seat before, but this day, I was especially tired. Tired from my work as a seamstress, and tired from the ache in my heart.”
― Rosa Parks

“you must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right.”
― Rosa Parks

“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, or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was forty-two. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.”
― Rosa Parks
