Civil Rights Day should be recognized

Posted: Thursday, March 02, 2006

Since it is a conflict of interest to have another holiday, I would like to see the name of Rosa Parks, the mother of the civil rights movement, written in the calendar as an unobserved holiday. But this will beat the meaning of writing to you. I would really like to see her remembered. Since there are so many holidays in a year already, I would like to see her remembered as a civil rights leader.

How could this be done? I researched about it, and one of the ways to do it is the model of how Presidents Day came about. It has come to talk about President Abraham Lincoln, the civil rights leader. He is being observed along with President George Washington and then the rest of the presidents.

With this, it seems appropriate that Martin Luther King Jr., the third Monday in January, be Civil Rights Day. On this date, we can remember all the civil rights fighters who made this country as great as it is. Everyone of this country that has actively spoken and supported freedom should be recognized on this date. Let this country stand and let it stand as a wholesome peacemaker country. Let no freedom-fighter be left behind.

To all the free people of this country, let us stand and make this happen. Let us remember Rosa Parks and the rest of the freedom-fighters.
