I just reread this blog by Forgottenman that touched me as much this time as it did when I first read it. Since it is even timelier now than when he originally posted, I hope you will read it too. This demonstration took place before I was born and long before Rosa Parks and the other demonstrations that we are more familiar with, so I had never heard of it, but the number of people affected by the actions that prompted this peaceful demonstration is stunning.
What we are going through now has happened before, but more peacefully. I guess some people have just lost their patience and are tired of waiting whereas others are using it as an excuse to demonstrate violence–which unfortunately detracts attention from those really seeking to bring change. I hope you watch this and comment:
