MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Sunday, December 5, 2010 marks the 50th anniversary of the Montgomery bus-boycott.

We often hear "one-person can't make a difference, can't change the outcome of a situation, or just really doesn't matter." Mrs. Rosa Parks, "Mother of the modern day Civil Rights movement" could not have felt that way when she refused to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery city bus.

Montgomery has come a long way. We can now sit at the front of the bus and enjoy integrated public accommodations. Many blacks enjoy a lifestyle and livelihood comparable to whites and other races.

Mrs. Parks' actions sparked change, and her inspiration cannot be lost in any one of us. Her message of standing up by simply sitting down impacted not only the lives of blacks, but the world.

Let's examine the messages for positive change we are sending, and what will be our legacy we wish others to remember.

Perhaps, you too can do what an unknown seamstress from Montgomery, Alabama did, some 55 years ago.
