What is that?
People who avoid life’s tough questions are the majority. But they are not in demand. This is so intriguing. Can’t figure it out. Yet.
And moreover, not sure it needs figuring out. Or is that actually avoiding a tough question?

Rosa Parks was not out to win a popularity contest. Was she?
She also was not the first to refuse to give up her bus seat for a white man. But thank goodness she did on December 1, 1955. She was 42.
- Where did her courage come from?
- Why did she demonstrate it?
- Did she have a plan?
- What was she prepared to give up?
- What did she think she’d gain?
- Was she scared?
Rosa Parks is one of my heros, inspiring me to use courage for the right reasons. So today I commit to asking the same questions.
And, by the way, it’s not a popularity contest. Courage rarely makes you popular until years later.
