  1. Harriet Tubman was an amazing woman and tremendous example of the huge impact one person can make when the odds seem insurmountable. My favorite quote by Ms Tubman is
    “If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the woods, keep going. If there's shouting after you, keep going. Don't ever stop. Keep going. If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.”

    Thanks for sharing this powerful reminder of how we must all draw on our inner strengths to move forward in a positive fashion.
