Who says one person can’t make a difference? Who says that what one person does (or doesn’t do) makes no impact on anyone else?
55 years ago today, one woman proved that what she did (and refused to do) made all the difference for a lot of people. A 42-year-old Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a public bus to a white passenger 55 years ago today and refused to pay the $14 ticket she was issued by the police. Her actions are considered the beginning of the Bus Boycott and an important part of the civil rights movement.
Think about it. One person, one woman, a world of change. It’s possible.

December 1st is World Aids Awareness Day.
No matter where you stand on the issue remember that out of the 33.3 million people around the world infected with HIV (making it the world’s most destructive epidemic) 2.5 million of them are children. Children, people.
Wear red to raise awareness.
