Rosa Parks - RIP

This is sad:

Rosa Parks, a seamstress from Montgomery, Alabama, who would not give up her bus seat to a white man in 1955, died Monday at the age of 92. Historians mark the date of her quiet-but-revolutionary act as the start of the modern civil rights movement in the United States.

Her impact on the United States was tremendous and, in my opinion, she was truly an American hero.
