15. A truly beautiful person...
and to think, she was just tired and wanted to get home, and didn't want any guff from anyone. Her passive resistance led to the Civil Rights Movement. Just one disobedient act, such great consequences.

2. She was a naturally good person
with an unerring sense of humanity. From a speech she made in 1998: "I am leaving this legacy to all of you ... to bring peace, justice, equality, love and a fulfillment of what our lives should be. Without vision, the people will perish, and without courage and inspiration, dreams will die -- the dream of freedom and peace."

9. A beautiful woman through and through. She had a mission
in life and she fulfilled it completely. We can take our cues from here. Do not be afraid to do what is right. She will be missed and we need to keep her legacy alive.

Rest now sweet sister. All of us girls will keep up the good fight. Did she ever win a medal before the presentation from Clinton? She and people like Martin Luther King junior, John Lewis, Jesse Jackson, Cindy Sheehan are all proof that one person can change a society.

23. No wonder Black people LOVED Clinton and thought him as one of them!
Look they way Clinton watch over her and sincerely cared. Rosa, you truly are beautiful lady and we will never forget what you did to move America move forward to better place! May you rest in peace and you're now in better place with God, Juses and Angels. O8)

24. Yep
Clinton didn't treat someone like they were less than them. He's such a nice person to everybody. I remember watching earlier this year from 2000 on CSPAN the voting rights march event and Clinton was there and everyone loved him and he just hung out with the crowd and didn't care about color and everything. That's a beautiful thing with him and Hillary and Chelsea.

28. What a wonderful soul
In this mornings paper I read that she retired working for Rep. John Conyers. Wouldn't it be great to have Mr. Conyers as our first Black President. Wouldn't it be nice just to have a president.
