Nope, not the kind like when we were kids waiting for a school bus, and not the kind folks utilizing mass transit are waiting to board the train. This one involves stopping something bad from happening on a train.

This one involves a JEN-U-INE heroine! I love good hero stories, and this woman is flat out brave like a lioness. Tameka Bates is an Evangelical Minister, she was riding a train when a passenger began harassing a young mother with a baby. It seemed he was trying to touch, or maybe even get the baby and the young mother wasn’t having any of it. I don’t blame her. Tameka has boarded the train at the same stop as the young mother. When she saw what was going on, she stepped in. If you look at the video, you can see other male passengers just sitting by, not helping out at all. But not Tameka, she felt God was calling her to step in and protect the Mother and her baby. She did it.

I think it’s a good illustration of the message I heard, Door to Decision.
