How they made a change


United States
35° 29' 33.7884" N, 93° 31' 14.0304" W

Sitting in a seat
not accepting defeat
Rosa Parks took a stand

Speaking for the press
and being laid to rest
Martin Luther King Jr. paid the ultimate price

Singing for those who wished to be heard
and not being detoured by criticism
Bob Dylan gave hope

Braving unknown territory
the Little Rock Nine
walked into a school knowing they were not wanted

All took a chance
made a sacrifice
and helped shape the world
into a dream come true
