Here comes Harriet, bold and strong.
Hear her stories told. Come along!

As a conductor, the Underground Railroad's guide,
nicknamed-"let my people go!"-Moses, she did stride.

For women's rights, she'd strive for more.
She showed lionesses how to roar.

In Civil War battles, she played her part,
veteran of the U.S. Army, brave of heart.
A leader in the fight, first female commander,
wielding awesome might. Is anyone grander?

A mother. A farmer. Building a future.

Before that an agent, spy, with secrets to keep.

Living with disability, she faced each day.
Wilderness, survivalist, in every way.

Through trials and strife, she would brave,
Harriet, the hero, born a slave.

As a professional LEGO brick builder, Dan loves to create innovative learning resources that incorporate brick building--and that effectively connect with people who live with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, like Dan. These days, you're likely to find Dan knee deep in excited kids, building bricks, or pages of new poetry and children's lit. You might also find him outside tending to the ducks, rabbits, and sheep on his small farm.
