Last week we started on our journey of facing up to the struggles in our lives with courage, faith and determination. We determined that the true anecdote to fear is courage, and facing that fear can indeed be daunting at times.
As we tackle this topic, let’s look to three historical figures whose life sacrifice becomes the basis of why courage is such a majestic force of change.
Today we’ll explore the heroic lives of Harriet Tubman, the ex-slave who led more than 300 slaves to freedom, Solomon Northup, kidnapped into slavery only to emerge as a free man 12 years later and Abraham Lincoln who fierce determination to keep the Union in tact ultimately emancipated millions of slaves around the United States.
Freedom fighters and survivors whose courage triumphed over fear in the midst of some of the most painful periods of American history.
