As the country mourns the loss of a remarkable woman, The Salvation Army also mourns the loss of one of its fiercest advocates – former First Lady Barbara Bush. Her dedication to countless causes from literacy to homelessness will leave a lasting legacy.

Did you know that Harriet Tubman was one of the most significant abolitionists in American history? Her determination to lead enslaved people to freedom through the Underground Railroad—and to lose not one along the way—earned her the nickname of ‘Moses.’ "I had reasoned this out in my mind; there was one of two things I had a right to: liberty, or death. If I could not have one, I would have the other, for no man should take me alive. I should fight for my liberty as long as my strength lasted, and when the time came for me to go, the Lord would let them take me." - Harriet Tubman #BlackHistoryMonth #HarrietTubman
With #AshWednesday begins the season of Lent! This period is reserved for fasting before celebrating the resurrection of Christ on Easter. In Mark 1:15, we read: “‘The time promised by God has come at last!’ he announced. ‘The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News.’”
"Faith walks simply, childlike, between the darkness of human life and the hope of what is to come." -Catherine Doherty
