Hope

In a cemetery in Jaffrey, New Hampshire you can read the following epitaph:

Sacred to the Memory of Amos Fortune

who was born free in Africa

a slave in America, he purchased

liberty, professed Christianity,

lived reputably, died hopefully

Nov. 17, 1901 At. 91.

Seems Amos Fortune had many challenges to face and overcome in his life. Whether our challenges are greater or lesser than his, our hope will come from the same source.
