park that dream in candy


This is for Rosa Parks who died today and who sat down to stand up for justice. Along with Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King and Ghandi she showed that you didn't have to be rich and powerful to change the world.It was back in Montgomery in 1955 when the following exchange took place.
"Are you going to stand up?" the bus driver, James Blake, asked.
"No," she answered.
"Well, by God," the driver replied, "I'm going to have you arrested."
"You may do that," Mrs Parks responded.
Her arrest led to a 381-day boycott of the Montgomery bus system, organized by a then unknown Baptist minister, one Reverend Martin Luther King. She said many years later "Without vision, the people will perish, and without courage and inspiration, dreams will die - the dream of freedom and peace".

It is also the anniversary of John Peel's death.Listen on the link to his first shows courtesy of the good old Beeb. I bet he would be pleased to share the day with Rosa Parks....so for the man who had a HUGE influence on everybody who was anybody here is an ear bleeder just for him.
