Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman has so much to offer even over a hundred years later.

Harriet Tubman escaped slavery to become a leading abolitionist. She led hundreds of enslaved people to freedom along the route of the Underground Railroad.

Learning about Harriet Tubman as a child and now, living in Maryland and seeing the land of the underground rail road, I find what she stood for and did to free African’s ensalved and now seeing the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement I’m quite appalled as I’m sure she would be too. As I believe all Black leaders in our past fighting for justice would be appalled and I’m not talking about NAACP leaders as they have done nothing to help todays injustices.

I am not discrediting slavery and how horrible and sickening it was; however, I want to shine a light on how Harriet Tubman changed the world.

Harriet Tubman loved The Lord Jesus Christ and through her faith in God and her obedient heart she led many slaves to Freedom. She was strong, determined, beatdown but never gave up. She was a kind person and showed Gods spirit to all she came across, even the slave owners.

Many white people throughout history famous and not famous helped free slaves. Many white plantation owners purchased slaves just to save them. Who is to say that the statues of many people that are being torn down were not helping behind the scenes. Much like the germans during the war who were saving Jews but showing loyalty to Hitler? This question can go on and on with every religion and race. The black people weren’t the only people being treated terribly even today, racism is everywhere. Unfortunately there is always a demon amongst us and that demon needs to be put down. Not the entire world to accommodate a BLM movement and certainly not by enforcing riots, looting, destruction death and fear.

Living in Annapolis Maryland I have the joy of seeing a statue of Alex Halley reading Roots to children of different ethnicities so they never forget the history of black lives. If you take this history away how are we to learn from the past?

Ephesians 4:31-32. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
