Rosa Parks is Dead

“I’d like people to say I’m a person who always wanted to be free and wanted it not only for myself; freedom is for all human beings,” she said in an interview with the Detroit Free Press in 1995.

Mrs. Parks, I’m with you. I hope that one day, all human beings will be free.

God bless you. In Heaven, where I believe your religious convictions show you’re going, I hope there is not only a seat for every person who is tired, but also a seat that is not next to a crazy person, because, as a rider of transit, I know they’re out there.

Here’s to my hope for Heaven: A seat on transit for all tired people, whatever their colour or creed, and some divine counselling and divine meds for those of us who ride the bus without but the briefest touch of sanity.

Hey, God, if you’re there, you could give Heavenly bus riders a hand here, eh?
