Listen as we discuss the plight of Rosa Parks and how she made an impact on society. She was a woman who believed in being treated fairly and felt everyone should be treated the same. Follow with us as we discuss her going to jail and the boycott of the transportation system and the effect it had on the town and on history.
For our 50th episode giveaway of a $50.00 Amazon gift card the winner is Jim from Atlanta. We ask who is the most influential person in your life and why. Following was his submission:
Influential. Life changing. That would have to be my wife, Samantha. We met when I was 47, never been married and set in my ways. A single mother with two children was a lot to consider. Samantha has shown me how to tackle life. When we met she had her own housekeeping business that was going very well. When she decided that she wanted to get her art degree, she persevered through two pregnancies to get it. She started an online coupon database. To do it, she taught herself Php and MySql. She is currently working on developing an artist website. She brought me out if bachelor poverty and turned us around to owning a house and getting all of our credit cards cut up and gone. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t inspire or motivate me. 10 years and counting.”
