Civil Rights Icon Passes

Civil rights icon Rosa Parks died yesterday of what is reported to be natural causes. She was 92.

Ms. Parks was a case of "greatness thrust upon them." All she did was refuse to give up her seat on a bus, but that simple act shook the world and helped spark the great civil rights crusades of the 1960s.

It's like a huge chapter of history has now closed. May flights of angels sing her to her rest.

Nice words about a real American heroine. I'm glad you didn't feel the need to tie in her death with current politics.
