34. Good point - Rosa, Martin, Cindy are, in very important ways, 'symbols'
-- the hereos are always 'all the people' -- if the people of Montgomery hadn't all decided they had had enough then Rosa and Martin would never have been 'leaders'. If 100's of people hadn't gone to Crawford to stand with Cindy, hadn't sent love and money from far way -- then Cindy would not be nominated as Person of the Year. The leaders of any group really just reflect what is happening with the people - if Cindy wins, I win, you win, and, very importantly, our troops and the Iraqi people win.
