The Power of Dreamers

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” ~ Harriet Tubman

 

Amen, Sister Tubman, amen!

 

There’s nothing I need add, I think.  Tubman’s story is a testament to her statement. I hope young people today are still learning about her, a runaway slave who returned and led about 300 others out of slavery. She went on to spy for the Union Army and fight for women’s suffrage.   A devout Christian who put her beliefs into action, at great personal cost and with the threat of death or worse looming over her.  A role model we need today, more than ever.

 

So when you dream, remember that within you are also the tools for success.
