But Rosa stood up for herself and asserted her human rights. It was more important to her than the consequences she was going to face for her actions. She may not have made a huge difference for civil rights that day, but she started a domino effect. Doing the right thing will always make a positive difference.
Bravo! I love these sorts of comparisons. People seem to forget that as a civilization, we're really no different internally. We just have different issues and need to attack them in the same principled manner. Revolutionary figures were typically not viewed positively in their time.
