The Birth of Rosa Parks

The Birth of Rosa Parks
(1955 booking photo of Rosa Parks in Montgomery, Alabama)

On this day in 1913, Rosa Parks, aka "The Mother of The Civil Rights Movement," was born. Her single effort of resistance in 1955, spawned the movement that would change the United States of America forever and we are eternally grateful.

If one little woman from the segregated Tuskegee, Alabama south could change a nation, imagine what kind of greatness we are all capable of.

The Cocoa Lounge celebrates the life and work of Rosa Parks today. Happy Birthday!

I love that photo of Rosa Parks. Anytime I watch those old documentaries about the civil rights movement it gets me heated. You have to give a lot of respect to Rosa Parks, MLK and all those leaders for putting up with all that and not strangling somebody.

Your payments will not only get to you faster but it will provide you with a history of your earnings for your records.
You have to find a way to take the tips you learn and make maximum use of them.
What I tell my clients is that they need to schedule their fitness time like it's a doctor's appointment.

1- Number your curse words and call out a number when stress strikes.
But be sure to have the old removed first; otherwise the new
will not come into play. The videos relax, they make people smile
and as they say, laughter is the best medicine.

Students should check into these details and statistics before making
applications. Maybe it is arrogant to want to become a hero, but I find it a noble
aspiration. Biotechnology company profiles give detail information
on the new product launches, technology, product portfolio, ongoing

Make a list of your nutrition chart involving juice and fruits at the top
followed by green vegetables and milk products. If you weigh yourself
everyday or every other day and see that you've gained weight, your motivation may go down and you'll be
likely to give up. Remember; there is a difference between
a fattening diet and a healthy diet.

If a wide search is made on the internet, services can be
utilized easily that are provided by them. But unlike their
blank counterparts, custom lanyards also can proclaim a marketing or motivational message to customers and employees.
Every now and then, new stars emerge and disappear in the blink of an eye and every smallest detail about the same becomes important celebrity news.

Sometimes funny pictures are created automatically,
and now need a little time to our own. The goal with a funny picture is
to have the photograph be almost a blank canvas for you to put the punch line on.

simply keep in mind few websites that may lead
you to fun and smiles on face.
