A beautiful world

“What a beautiful world this would be, when we should see everything right side up,” Sojourner Truth once said.

Truth also said: “Truth is powerful, and it prevails.

Sojourner Truth was born a slave and sold from her parents when she was nine years old. Even though she never learned to read or write, she dictated her autobiography. She traveled for many years as an advocate for freedom for blacks and for women’s rights.

I learned about Truth this summer at a Girl Scout 3Cs Book Club. The 3Cs define the Girl Scout’s mission of encouraging girls to develop courage, confidence and character.
