• I was a little grim on Saturday morning, December 3, because for the previous 10 weeks I used to say, "yippee it's Saturday", but that day, there was no 'Rolling Back the Years' supplement in the Irish Independent.
Now it is sadly finished and, as they say, all good things must come to an end. I enjoyed 50 wonderful years of history from home and abroad. These wonderful supplements stirred my own memories of the time.
There was a photo of Rosa Parks, the very courageous black woman who refused to give up her seat for a white male passenger on a bus in December 1955 while she was returning from a day at work in Montgomery, Alabama. It was such an iconic moment and changed the course of American history.
