Michael Silence points out that tomorrow is the 49th anniversary of Rosa Parks' heroic refusal to move to the back of the bus - an single, selfless, heroic act that changed the face of civil rights.

Michael makes an interesting statement:
"Was that not the single most courageous act by an individual during the 20th Century?"
I had to sit and think a moment, and try to come up with other noteworthy, courageous individual acts in the last century.

The only other one that comes to mind is:

Can you think of others?

And as for the 21st Century, can we go ahead and nominate Todd Beamer (although he didn't act alone, he was the one most remembered)?
