Power of one person
As I read this speech by Dr. King, Rosa Parks comes into focus for me. Here is one lady that refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white man. That one act alone in many ways seemed to spark the civil rights movement for African Americans. Our personal activism is important, but we often forget this fact. It is much easier to trust our destiny to the professionals at HRC, Lambda Legal, etc. While we need these organizations, every LGBT person needs to become an activist for us to take this thing home.
