Powerful, powerful food for thought Sister Indigo Blue. As I listened to Dr. Carson, memories flooded my mind of things of which he spoke. That 'SENSE OF COMMUNITY', where you knew that if you mis-behaved, and one of the Elders in your community saw or knew about it, start getting your story straight because the news of the incident and your involment, had already beat you home. And yet again, that same Elder made sure you were fed and safe until you got home, if you were in need. The reminder to us of the many contributions we have made in the success of these United States of America. Why are we bickering here? It reallyis just a difference of opinions, that we should be able to overcome and stand proudly as a race in UNITY to fight for what is our right. We are Americans!
No one can take that away from us. We may dis-own it, but its still true. We will never make the progress needed....if we continue to
start over, again and again.
