“Stand for something or you will fall for anything. Today’s mighty oak is yesterday’s nut that held its ground.” - Rosa Parks 💬
Rosa Parks. People worldwide know this name and recognize her as a person to learn from and one who is worthy of their highest respect and admiration. And for good reason.
She was a woman who is a symbol of equality, civil rights, and the American Civil Rights Movement. The holiday is celebrated on either February 4, her birthday, or on December 1 which is the anniversary of the date in 1955 on which she refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.
Rosa Parks's refusal to give up her seat sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott—which protested the segregation of public transit in the city—and really, the modern Civil Rights Movement.
So stand for what you believe in and what you know is right. The world is shaped by the people who don't give in to fear, and the world is always in need of more of them.
From all of us at Signa… happy birthday, Rosa Parks! 🎉
