  1. That story is very powerful, and it reminds me why our Hebrew Israelites( called african americans by the world) mothers and grandmothers/ancestors were able to do the same thing while being in slavery; work in the fields or inside of the slave house plantations, go into labor, give birth, strap their baby on their back and continue working afterwards….its in our DNA. Shalom Granny!!!
