Dear Harriet Tubman

Dear Harriet Tubman,

You are one of the most exalted and lionhearted abolitionists and former slaves that lived in the 1800s. I just wanted to thank you for helping in the struggle to free slaves. It's real great that races of all origins can live together in harmony. Unfortunately, I still notice a little hatred in our country like Southern hatred fo Northern people. When I visited Alabama, my family and I went out to eat and some man gabbed out loud, "Do you know how to give a Yankee directions?" Then a bystander replied, "Tell them to keep going north and don't stop." I wish you all the best and thank you, Harriet.
