It seems that almost every week there is a terrible tragedy somewhere in the world that needs to be mourned.
This week our tears fall for the victims of violence in Nice, France.
The challenge for me is not to give in to fear and anger — though I feel both — but to keep dreaming great dreams in spite of those who seek to destroy them.
The author of these inspiring words, Harriet Tubman, was a slave who escaped her captives and then dared to return time after time to help other slaves escape. Her fears and anger must have been enormous, and yet time after time her dreams of freedom called her back to the struggle.
May we have the courage to keep our dreams of changing the world alive.
