A tribute to Rosa Parks

27Oct05

Apple dedicates a webage to Rosa Parks, a black woman who lived during the era of racial segregation in the United States. Her defiance sparked the change in the country where only Caucasians were recognized as human beings. I wish for someone like Rosa Parks in a country where racism is an accepted norm, even if you are a racist against your own race.

Rosa Louise Parks, 1913-2005

Here’s to the crazy ones.

The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.

Because they change things.

They invent. They imagine. They heal.
They explore. They create. They inspire.

They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

We make tools for these kinds of people.

While some see them as the crazy ones, We see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
