    Not in leagues with Madonna but she took time out her PROFESSIONAL PURSUITS to tackle a GROWING COMMUNITY PROBLEM.

    Who would have known an KIND AFRICAN would be concerned with the MATTER of AFRICAN-AMERICAN children from BROKEN HOMES.

    Yanno Sister DustyElbow, I been meaning to tell you, you've dropped some of the most interesting, and thought provoking articles. I think people are reading them, listening, absorbing the information, and keeping a watchful eye out for the outcomes. I know this is the case for me.

    Keep on dropping them sis! I enjoy reading the articles you provide us.

    Hmmmmm! You're probably right Sister Destee. I thought I read some where dustyelbow was a Sister. I've searched through most of the post to find out if I am wrong, but couldn't find nothing. It wasn't a thorough such though.

    I apologize if I am wrong.:zipit:

    This is great news, and gives me hope for further Pan-African development between us Americanized Africans and our Continental sisters and brothers.

    I prefer not too out of perspectives that would be GAIN or LOST but everyday that I am able to glimpse at the world again I am finding out that claiming myself as a BROTHER or a SISTER on the INTERNET does not MATTER. Problems abound and its going to take more than a IDENTITY to RESOLVE THEM. Sometimes we might have to GIVE UP on THEM ALL TOGETHER in certain cases.

    Just another fellow internet personality.

    That is all.

    I've been in email contact with Ms. Yeboah since I ran across this post. I am so there!! Turns out that they would like a puter program, but don't have one. Yet!

    Hey, Ibrahim! Are you anywhere near the school, and might you have a spare couch? <grin>

    Sounds like she is probably heading to Ghana over with the break in school activities.

    This woman (black) in fit West African garments where I use to work doing trips to Ghana to build a school and provide school supplies inspired by the attentive of the students during a visit ot a village outside Accra where they had no decent facility for continuous learning.

    Right about now she is heading over there for her annual pilgrimage to supply the needs of children there to finish off the building of the school to serve more children and is asking support for this venture and more.

    I say anything helps and these pilgrims will converge at some point.
