    Default Rosa Parks passes away at 92

    Rosa Parks, who helped trigger the civil rights movement in the 1950s, died Monday, her longtime friends told CNN. She was 92. Parks inspired the movement when she refused to give up her bus seat to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama, in December 1955. "As the mother of the new civil rights movement, [she] has left an impact not just on the nation, but on the world," said U.S. Rep. John Conyers, who met Parks during the early days of the civil rights struggle.

    RIP.

    yeah, it's interesting how can people make so many important differences in their lifetime, and [sometimes] not even have that intension in mind. it wasn't even like she was protesting or anything to make a point. she just wanted to sit down. she was arrested, banned from the buses and had to go to court over that shit. this may be the biggest thing she'll be remembered for, but i'm sure she's done alot of stuff just as important, but probably on a smaller scale.
