     Rosa Parks was one of the people not afraid to stand up for what she believed in.  I think she was a hero because she wasn't afraid to do what everyone else was afraid to do.  She went to jail, and went through many hard days, trying to get freedom for her people, so that's why I think she was a hero.
brodie | 2/28/2006 12:24 AM
she really was a great person
Jakenia Stevens | 2/8/2006 11:54 PM
I think that Rosa Parks is my hero because she fought for freedom and she was the mother of civil rights movement.
Alexus Johnson | 2/8/2006 8:42 AM
Rosa Parks is my hero because she is the reason I don't have to sit on back of the bus.
Pthao | 2/6/2006 12:41 PM
I've just read the extract about her however i draw one thing we all do all things we think it's right for us & everyone. She dares to make one thing which rarely anyone does: struggle for freedom, against racism discrimination.

Rosa Parks is a BIG hero to me cause i think it was a awesome thing that she did for standing up for black rights. Most people wouldn't even imagine doing the thing she did. I think she is a very special person that's why i chose her to do my History Day project on!!!!
brittany mary | 11/11/2005 1:46 AM
Rosa Parks is a hero to me because she fought for freedom. she didn't give up even when people said that they were going to kill her. i wish she was still alive.
