A Statue in Sylva

I had an inspiring weekend in a small town called Sylva. We stumbled upon this lovely park with a gorgeous statue.

An event was about to start so my camera and I had to rush to the scene. I was amazed by the strength portrayed in the sculpture of Harriet Tubman, her face so determined.

Harriet Tubman was about to be honored by a special service in Sylva. We could not stick around for it but I was happy to see this beautiful tribute to such a courageous woman.

I want to add here that many sources report that Harriet Tubman suffered from epilepsy. I thought it fortuitous that we stumbled upon this scene with our Rose. I hope she was as inspired as I was.
