“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.”  These words spoken by Ms. Tubman must have encouraged the authors to continually move forward to complete their dreams of sharing the story of their family with the world.  I know the authors personally and I’m sure this was not an easy adventure for them; although ultimately rewarding, there were times of great pain and sacrifice for them and their family as they learned more of their heritage, as well as the price Harriet Tubman paid for her freedom and the freedom of many others.  Aunt Harriet’s story belongs to all of us whose life or history was ever touched by slavery.”
