"Power lines, my travlin' partner on this ride. Dripping, pulling - up and down, in this sing song, their lullaby blends with the swaying train. I curl myself into this journey; folding myself up into this pocket of time. Old familiars greet me - that swing set in the back yard, the ruins of an old church covered in new birth and old - mixed with unremembered newness."

Rosa Parks

Dear Ms. Parks,

Thank you for walking this earth and sharing your path with the rest of us. Though in the world, you should never have had to take a stand on where you sit on the bus based on color, social constructions, and human cruelty, your courage inspired a nation. You remind us that a simple act can change the world, and that a humble being can influence powerful circles around her. You have now passed between the veil, your path with us done, and I am honored to place you in the circle of ancestors guiding me with their character, conviction, and herstory. I will teach the children the importance of your name, the history that surrounded you, and the importance of heros in our communities.

Thank you,
