Ruby Bridges was the first black child to cross an invisible line and enter an all white school She was just six years old when she first arrived at that school in New Orleans on November 14 1960 On Rubys first day a large crowd of angry white people gathered outside the Franz Elementary School The people carried signs that said they didnt want black children in a white school People called Ruby names some wanted to hurt her She stuck through a year of injustices and at the end there were more The lesson she wanted us to learn when she spoke to us was that there are always going to be injustices but if we just get to know people prejudices will no longer exist Now Ruby has established The Ruby Bridges Foundation She has a website that you can visit at wwwrubybridgesnet I think that Ruby Bridges is a truly amazing person She was a very courageous girl walking into that school and facing that mob And even more she prayed forthem Please God try to forgive those people Because even if they say those bad things They dont know what theyre doing So You could forgive them Just like You did those folks a long time ago When they said terrible things about You Ruby Bridges was a huge part of the history of the civil rights movement What she did was an inspiration to many kids parents and teachers She inspired integration of blacks and whites in the schools in the South Today she is 45 years old and she gives speeches at schools She has even established a foundation to help underprivileged children become successful students So in conclusion I think Ruby Bridges is a great inspiration to all children everywhere
