Thoughts on never giving up.
Just a thought for those of you who need some reminding:
Harriet Beecher Stowe, born in 1811, was an educated woman in a time when women didn’t generally seek or were allowed into institutions of higher education. She was an author of a book that, once published, has never gone out of publication. (Uncle Tom’s Cabin) More importantly, she and her family were abolitionists. Her work of fiction, which allowed countless readers in America to begin to empathize with the plight of slaves and their families, captured a nation’s, as well as a president’s, attention.So whatever it is that you strive for, if you feel it is important, and if you feel you have the voice to lift it up, remember the words of Harriet Beecher Stowe: “Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”~Thanks!
