The Power of Rosa Parks
I have already written about great leadership and leadership principles found in historic military wars and battles such as World War II and the Civil War. It is easy to find leadership in such times of national crisis and battle.

The passing of Rosa Parks was a poignant reminder about the power of one.

One person sitting down for moral authority
One person standing up for truth
One woman
Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks who defied law and prejudice by remaining seated on a bus sparked the modern civil rights movement, died Monday evening at the age of 92. Her simple action led to a 381-day boycott of the Montgomery bus system, organized by a then unknown Baptist minister, one Reverend Martin Luther King. This spawned the mass movement which culminated in the 1964 Civil Rights Act and an end to segregation.

"I am leaving this legacy to all of you, to bring peace, justice, equality, love and a fulfillment of what our lives should be. Without vision, the people will perish, and without courage and inspiration, dreams will die - the dream of freedom and peace." - Rosa Parks.
