How Important were the actions of Rosa Parks to the civil rights movement? Explain your answer. Rosa Parks was a black American who it has been said, started the black civil rights movement. Rosa Parks was fro Montgomery, and in Montgomery they had a local low that black people were only allowed to sit in a few seats on the public buses and if a white person wanted their set, they would have to give it up. On one bus journey Parks was asked to move for a white person, she refused and the police were call and she was arrested and convicted of breaking the bus laws. The black people of Montgomery decided that the best way to show their anger at what had happened and how they were being treated would be by boycott, not use, the local bus service. One the first day of the boycott the buses were almost empty. The black community worked together and arranged another forms of transport such as car pool, or waling. Black taxi companies only charged back passengers the price of the bus fair and some white people who could do without their servants even when to pick them up form their homes. During the boycott the bus company lost 65% of their earnings. This showed people who powerful non-violent protest could be, by challenging black segregation laws without committing a crime. It also showed the black people how powerful they could be if they worked together. When Parks case went to court a black civil rights lawyer helped her fight her case, and in December 1956, on year after Parks was arrested, the Supreme Court decided that the Montgomery bus law should be illegal. This also meant that all through the United States, segregation of public services was illegal, they could no longer ask black people to move from their seats for a white person. Rosa Parks's case was very important for all black Americans as it acted like a test case showing them that if Parks was able to make a difference then maybe they would be able to make a difference as well. I also showed
American civil rights activist, she impacted segregation, fought for equal rights, and started the Montgomery Bus Boycott. To many, Rosa Parks is brave, courageous, and loving. By standing up for what she belied in, she put her life in a dangerous situation. She was considered the “Mother of the Civil Rights Movement” and her life left a mark on history. Rosa Parks was a remarkable woman who chose to make a simple decision that made an extraordinary impact in the fight for civil rights.

What is one essential skill to master in driving a vehicle? There are a variety of people who have different perspectives on which driving skills are important; nevertheless, I find that parallel parking is a beneficial technique for all drivers. This is especially important in populated cities, where finding an available parking spot is hard – surprisingly, impossible. Therefore, the skill of parallel parking, parking in-between two vehicles, allows you to succeed in parking in an accessible parking….

Economical causes of the French Revolution were in fact very important and influential. Without this type of cause it is very likely that the revolution in France ever would have happened. Even so there are three other important factors to the revolution, Political, Social, and Cultural. All four of these causes together are what really caused the French Revolution.
Before the French Revolution France was in a major economic crisis. There was a royal debt; the French government kept….

Were Germany’s Actions in WWII Justified?
“War does not determine who is right- only who is left” (Russell). Bertrand Russell, a renowned philosopher, was, and still is, absolutely correct. Many perish after earth-shattering wars, such as the tragedy to humanity known as World War II. If we can take a lesson from this calamity, it is the making, not the breaking, of connections that will enable moral and educational lessons….
Jarassic Park: The Dinosaurs Were Not To Blame For The Destruction of Jurassic
'Nature won't be stopped .......or blamed for what happens'(Ian Malcolm ,
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton). Jurassic Park mystifies its critique even
as it makes it; or rather, to be more precise, it offers us contradictory
messages about whom to blame for what goes wrong. Science finally takes the
blame. Near the end of the book, while the humans are fighting off the
velociraptors, Malcolm (the mathematician)….

He believes in luck, because luck is what helped him to not get abducted. He had a lot of responsibility, being the oldest sibling in his family, but this day he was allowed to be alone and have free time in this park. He still has a lot of luck to this day and he strongly believes in luck. I liked the way he told his story and it was very scary and emotional….
