“I would like to be known as a person who is concerned about freedom and equality and justice and prosperity for all people.” – Rosa Parks, Civil Rights Activist 1913-2005
What a wonderful statement about being known for something that is beyond oneself. Freedom, equality, justice, and prosperity are basic human rights along with so many other rights of the human condition. If we could all see that that we are all equal, what a better world this would be.
Equality and Social Justice can mean different things to different people but when we are able to see past our differences, we can realize that we have the same needs and desires, and that we are more alike than different.
