I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

 "At the end of the day, the work begins. After we have expended all our energy surviving the madness, comes the second wind that enables us to smile at and hug each other in a genuine, unpretentious love, and again begin to do the quiet, insistent work of nationbuilding. 
It is a glorious, fulfilling time when we attend lectures by our own, have our study groups, drum and dance and attend communiversity classes, sometimes face-to-face, sometimes online. 
It is when we direct our rites programs, carefully listen to the wisdom of our most thoughtful Elders, study our classics, write our truths, teach from the heart, go to spiritual gatherings and watch and discuss the merits and lessons of ourstorical documentaries and sankofan movies. 

It is a time spent celebrating births, spiritual joinings and family, a time when families, complements and individuals can receive counsel. We gather at day's end as individuals in collective mediation to correctly channel our righteous rage, as families deliberating our mission statements, as communities reaffirming our desire to earn our Ancestors' appreciation. 
It is our time, and our time alone."
