Today’s quote from Rosa Parks


feb25 gf 1

“Prayer and the Bible became a part of my everyday thoughts and beliefs. I learned to put my trust in God and to seek Him as my strength.” – Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks was an activist in the Civil Rights Movement who is best known for her role in the Montgomery Bus Boycott. She garnered national attention when on December 1, 1955, she refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white passenger when the whites-only section had been filled up. Her arrest inspired a year-long boycott of the buses in Montgomery. She received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal.
