Did anybody else catch the major gafe on one of the news reports (I was either watching CBS or ABC I think) where they said she won the Congressional Medal of Honor? Of course it was the civilian equivalent Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Indeed. Rest In Peace, Ms. Parks. My condolences go out to your family at this time.

If anything, Ms. Parks, and her colleagues in the Civil Rights Movement, provide us with an example of how "ordinary" human beings can stand up, even while being afraid, and tell the truth to the powerful.

I hope that all of us, myself included, will be able to take that lesson and run with it.

Cheers, D.
