Rosa Parks died last night at age 92.

"When I made that decision," she said, “I knew that I had the strength of my ancestors with me.”

I wish I had that kind of faith.

File that under "I didn't realise she was still alive"... Great woman.

I think we all have far more strength than we know. Did you ever, in a million years, imagine you'd survive losing a child? But you did - you are. You are one of the strongest women alive. I admire you.

Me too Catherine, me too.
And thanks for your last comment on my blog. I don't blame just myself though. I do blame the midwives and doctors (so-called "experts") for not noticing the signs that something was clearly wrong and that Thomas was in severe distress. It makes me very weary of doctors because I know all too well that they are only human and can't know it all. Where is Dr. House when you need him???

I think you do. I've seen it in the strength you give other women. I am always impressed by your kind words on Silent Grief.
