Underdogs

People look up to the underdogs for a reason!

Underdogs in history

Tons of role models in history were underdogs and that led them to big success in life. Rosa Parks is a great example she tried and tried until she accomplished the impossible, by refusing to give up her seat on the bus in 1955, to a white man. Rosa got tired of segregation and did something about it, she decided not to give up her seat when the bus driver told her to move to the back of the bus so a white man can sit in her seat, three of the blacks moved but she didn't because she felt like it was wrong for them to move and the white man to sit. Even though people gave stares and bad comments about Rosa she still never gave in she would fight for the rights of blacks sitting on the bus and go to school with whites with no problem at all. She would fight for not only her but for every black who has miss treated by whites, she wouldn't play fire with fire because she knew it would get her or anyone else no where. Parks was a role model to everyone, even as a kid she believed that anything is possible if you set your mine to it, without Rosa who would stand up to fight? By one individual made a huge accomplishment and difference in history. She was a remarkable woman who died knowing that she achieved the most amazing in life, 2005 she past away knowing that everything was fine. Even though there is some racism in the world today she showed us to never give in and fight for rights.
