Pioneer Mother crossing the Plains trying to keep her freezing children warm. Very touching painting by Megan Rieker. This is the background story for the painting that was displayed at the Museum of Church History and Art in Salt Lake City 2003 Elizabeth Horrocks Jackson : Pioneer Mother “A few days after the death of my husband, the male members of the company had become reduced in number by death and sickness, that on reaching the camping place at night, there were not sufficient men with strength enough to raise the poles and pitch the tents. The result was that we camped out with nothing but the vault of Heaven for a roof and the stars for companions. The snow lay several inches deep on the ground. The night was bitterly cold. I sat down on a rock with one child in my lap and one on each side of me. In that condition I remained until morning. “...Under such adverse circumstances I had become despondent. I was six or seven thousand miles from my native land in a wild, rocky mountain country, in a destitute condition, the ground covered with snow, the waters covered with ice, and I with three fatherless children with scarcely nothing to protect them from the merciless storms.” That night at the end of her strength and will, she had a “stunning revelation.” “In my dream, my husband stood by me and said- ‘Cheer up, Elizabeth, deliverance is at hand.’” The next day they were found by the express team sent ahead from Devil’s Gate. Taken from “Leaves from the life of Elizabeth Horrocks Jackson Kingsford”, of the Martin Handcart Co. painting by Megan Rieker firstname.lastname@example.org

“Lessons for our time can be extracted from the noble examples that come from our pioneering past. Our journey today is different from the one taken years ago, but the trail we must follow is the same. It is the trail of faith. And if we are to be just as successful in facing our challenges and trials as our pioneer ancestors were in facing theirs… we must have the same kind of faith, the same willingness to give our all.” –M. Russell Ballard

Catherine "Kate" German, who was taken captive with her sisters, Sophia, Julia, and Adelaide, by Cheyenne Indians after their family (mother, father, 3 siblings) were killed in Kansas in 1874. Only the four youngest, Sophia, Catherine, Julia, and Adelaide, were spared and taken captive. The two youngest, Julia and Adelaide, age 7 and 5, were subsequently abandoned on the prairie in what is now the Texas panhandle. Sophia and Catherine were kept by their Cheyenne captors until rescued in 1875.

Catherine German captured by Native Indians in 1874. In 1874, captured by Indians along with her three younger sisters, Catherine German was subjected to repeated rapes and beatings by the tribe that held her prisoner. Her parents and two other siblings were murdered and scalped. She was held for 5 months in this horrible, violent and demeaning situation.

Sophia and Catherine were kept by their Cheyenne captors until rescued in 1875. There is a book written about the girls and their captivity. It is a very old book-- I read it at Sabetha,Kansas at the Mary Cotton library. One of the girls married a man from Bern, Kansas which is only a few miles from Sabetha. If I remember right she had children and lived her entire married life in Been. Very interesting story!!! i
This is yet another story of a young girl who was held captive by the Indians.

Irena Sendler. This is awesome because I actually learned about this lady in my honors class!! Inspirational woman!!
Irena Sendler helped smuggle over 2,500 children from the Warsaw Ghettos. She is a true hero. Al Gore made a slide show about something he never actually knew anything about. The Nobel Peace Prize lost it's credibility when it awarded a liar and a cheat instead of a saint.
Remember this lady? I didn't either - Originally posted on Diasp.org An amazing woman who saved over 2500 infants and children during WWII in the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland. She eventually was captured and tortured and miraculously got out when she was scheduled for execution! She missed getting the Nobel Peace Prize 'by that much' in 2007. The year that Al Gore received it. She died in 2008.
Wow, what an amazing woman. A must read story about Irena Sendler. A prolife Polish woman who lost the Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore.
An amazing story of a true hero. She was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, but Al Gore was selected??
A dangerous woman in the most literal sense, Senior Sergeant Roza Shanina was a sniper in the WWII Soviet Army. She racked up at least 54 kills of German soldiers before her death from wounds at age 20. She served part of the time in an all-woman sniper unit. Before the war she worked as a kindergarten teacher.
