The Big Three

When I think back on my childhood, I realize that I have TONS of great memories of my Grandparent's house. Oddly enough, one memory kept bouncing around in my head. My Grandparents had the walls covered with family pictures, and I mean covered. There were only three pictures that I can remember that weren't family. I call them The Big Three: Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Jesus Christ. My Uncle had a creepy picture of Abraham Lincoln, but that's a different post. Now that they have passed away, I think I'm gonna carry on that tradition. Unfortunately, I can only think of two. Anyone who reads this Blog regularly can probably guess: Barack Obama & Tupac Shakur. I'm stuck on my third. If anyone has a suggestion for my third, please post it under the comments. More importantly, I would love for you to think of what your big three would be. It definitely had a effect on my because I wanted to seek these people out once I got to school to see why they were so important that they were up on the wall next to Uncle Anthony's college pictures. I think it is important to let the young people know that there is world outside of the wall of home, and people you've never met & probably never will can be important to your life. but that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I

I am a young white woman, and I will tell you right now, one of mine would be Rosa Parks. Not just because she was Afro-American, but also a woman. At a period in time when she had not one, but TWO strikes against her, she still stood up for something she believed in. She did so even during in a time where a piece of paper said women had the same rights, but many men still thought women should be seen and not heard (still do actually), let alone a "colored" woman.
I think she should be a hero to us all and I would proudly display her picture in my home.
