For the past couple of days I have not been able to get that picture of Goebbels with all his kids out of my mind, and now I won't be able to get the image of you bursting into tears because of your mom and Rosa Parks out of my mind.

And that is the effect of your writing on this total stranger. Thanks for taking the time to write such beautiful stuff for complete strangers. I am in awe.

Oh Danny,
What a lovely tribute and so moving too...I understand how one event can trigger so many feelings connected to other events...in this case loss...such a tough one, isn't it? Rosa Parks. How brave that seemingly simple act of hers was...especially, at that point in time in Alabama.
Thanks Danny for sharing such profound thoughts and feelings.

It's strange...

Over the years, I've always felt this connection to Rosa Parks...wishing I could have been a witness to the action that has always seemed to bring about the entire Civil Rights Movement. Or at least that's how we were taught in grade school.

But yet...

When the news of her death reached me...I didn't feel anything. I wanted to feel something, but nothing came. I haven't been able to bring myself to read any articles about it.

Everyone knows who she is and what she did and it's sad that she's gone. None of us really want to talk about it, though. I don't think my generation can really comprehend this and that makes me sadder than anything.
