It was incredibly humbling to be in the place where for 300 years, human beings were captured and held like animals, until the day when they were herded through the door unto the slave ships.  Many died in this place, many more died on the slave ships.  Families were torn apart. 

There was such an ominous, sobering feeling as I tried to take in this place.  It is now a tourist attraction, but it was once a place of darkness...a place that represents man's deepest propensity to devalue, degenerate, and degrade the glory of God's image with which each human person is created.  The contrast of the glory and brilliance of that image to this place that was once disease-ridden, unsanitary, cruel, and merciless is unmistakable.  For 300 years they coexisted in this place, and all I could do was stand speechless.
