Poem

Tuesday: Ruby Bridges
1960 - 6 years old

Mom said, "My God, what have I done?"
She spoke her heart
Ruby Bridges
She did her part
Ruby Bridges
She reflected
Ruby Bridges
We were affected
Ruby Bridges
That little child
Ruby Bridges
That world beguiled
Ruby Bridges
By a little child
Ruby Bridges
Who changed the course of history
Ruby Bridges
No longer a memory
But a reality
who? "Ruby Bridges"
