    Peace and Blessings Brother Chuck,

    I love Gil Soctt Heron ... and was saddened to hear of his passing.

    Unfortunately, the site was down the day it was announced, with none of us able to speak on it here in a timely fashion.

    I'm glad you didn't keep waiting for someone else to post the thread about our Ancestor, and decided to do it yourself.

    Thank You!

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Destee

    Good afternoon, Sister Destee...

    And I did factor in the site's issue/problems/etc. when I posted that...

    But considering one always opinionated poster's claims we don't usually take the time etc. to give big props:

    His silence etc. is revealing too...

    Not yours, elder bruh!

    I. e., the question to be answered, just which of my or your generations heroes/sheroes/etc. do the likes of gone (hardly brother) Gil Scott/Heron's words etc. matter to?

    Such is a question they need/ and we want them to answer:

    Then we can take it from there!

    P. S. Also do peep my FC account, and notable a few who did as well as have...

    (Smile)...

    Later...

    CTJ

    Like Lady Day and Ray Charles etc. before him: Yes... Gil Scott/Heron was a flawed human being...But-- whose life work allowed him to rise above and beyond the typical one of us! So a case study we need not need or should want to be another King--another Malcolm--in order to make a difference...Do speak about and up to our ancestors via positive means/ways/etc., brother Gil...Thank you...FYI...
