Thursday, December 01, 200550th Anniversary ....
If you’ve used our mass transit system you'd know that finding an empty seat on a bus in New York City is akin to finding a Bush supporter at a Clinton rally, but today it is will be different. There will be one empty seat for sure on each of the city's buses.
Today is the 50th anniversary of a defining moment in civil rights history, a moment that changed our country forever… it is the anniversary of the day that Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man. In what I feel is an extremely touching tribute New York’s Mass Transit Authority is leaving the seat directly behind the city’s bus drivers empty in honor Ms. Parks. A picture of Parks, who died last month, will be placed above the empty seat on about 6,000 MTA buses, and drivers will keep their headlights on in her honor. Similar tributes are also planned for other transit systems across the country.
