    Peace & Blessings Family...

    The recent disarray on the board troubles my spirit. I like to think that if anywhere we here at Destee.com are able to agree/disagree/discuss etc... and still respect the love that has come to form this home here.

    I wont pretend that Im the easiest person to be around or like for that matter whether no matter where. One thing is for certain there is enough anger and malice and jealousy and disarray spread on its own without our contributing to it So...


    ...THIS IS AN APPRECIATION THREAD...

    For anyone who truly has come to call Destee.com home to your cyber-world musings one thing remains true, you love it here. Whether for the sharp tongue witty phrased banter. Or it could be for the wealth of wisdom and knowledge we are fortunate to find all at one spot here. Or it could just be the simple knowing that D built this spot for us, black brethren seeking to be among the company of our own.

    Whatever the reason, there have been many a great mind or kind spirit encountered here on the Destee.com board. You may have a list miles long of what you DONT like but thats not what this thread is for so please if thats your intent... :10500: you might wanna :car: because ummmm errr uhhh

    I aint the one honey yall gon mess around and make me go all :getout: up in hurr and um please dont let the light bright fool ya :read: that is NOT pretty but I will go cyber crazy if'n you decide you wanna be the one to ruin the peaceful intention of this thread. I may not be cyber world savvy but I got couple kids in my center that could send yo pc something kina horrible if'n ya be one of dem crazy folk tryin to find some horrible natured ugly you wanna bring in here. THIS IS NOT FOR THAT.


    Instructions are as follows....

    Pick ONE BROTHER and ONE SISTER whom on this board and say something nice about em and dont say it unless its sincere family come on. There are so
    many phenomenal minds and spirits in our family that its worth telling em so! Spread a little love give a little good back into the energy and lets grow :) :heart: :grouphug:

    If the person you wanna say something about has already been mentioned then its okay to add to them but maybe have someone else in there so we dont miss out on anyone ok?

    I will start with a few of my own and I encourage our family to participate no matter what you think of me. Also family if someone you dont like sends you positive shout outs... dont be nastee about it just thank em and move it along. POSITIVITY is what its about. Negative threads have such a growth boost in here so lets let some positivity be about us for a change family come on :read: :)

    ...Leading by example...

    Appreciation Shout Out to...

    Brother Son of Ra... I have never had any encounterings with Brother Son of Ra but when I read his posts I always hear the strong stern voice of a concerned black man in his verbiage. Son of Ra reminds me of one of our past moderators Brotha Panafrica in that you both choose your words carefully and when you do speak it is with nothing but an overwhlemingly resounding bouquet of pride. Even though you dont always agree Brotha your well spoken but determined and unwavering voice here on the site is one that I appreciate reading and I find that your spirit is a credit not just here for Destee.com but for our people period. and so I send this I APPRECIATE YOU SHOUT OUT to him :) :geek:



    Sister Truetothecause... Where to begin on sister True :) I am a person whose participation is actually heavily in the poetry forum so here in the open forum I mostly read and read and read and... well you get the point. lol But I LOVE sister Trues energy and family if yall get the chance you should check out her youtube page. Sister true is so DOWN FOR THE PEOPLE that she radiates pride. (She also has these killer brown eyes I mean piercing for real) Before anyone else was doing shout outs via youtube Sister True was puttin Destee.com out there and more importantly putting positivity out there. I enjoy her posts and I enjoy the down to earth realness that is her in her vids and I hope she rubs off on us all :) and so I send this I APPRECIATE YOU SHOUT OUT to her :)

    And again...

    Appreciation Shout Out to...

    Brother Oldiesman Also someone else that I have never personally encountered here but I am a sister that LOVES to laugh and brotha oldiesman has this natural humor to him that is so heartwarming to me. Even in some of the most heated threads brotha Oldiesman will say something in one sentance that just sends me crackin up lol He is someone who can state his opinion and even disagree but not be upset about it lol He just keeps it movin lol and is hilariously calm and cool and collected and I dont know how he does it but im giving an I APPRECIATE YOU SHOUT OUT to him :)


    Sister River... I love sister Rivers DOWN FOR THE BLACK MAN spirit. I can remember when there was quite a lot of BLACK MAN BASHING coming onto the board. It was really overwhelming. It manifested itself in these inter-racial relationship threads and parenting threads and family threads and so forth and one of the biggest defenders of our Strong Black Kings was sister River. And she didnt need anybody to lead it out or start it up. When a brotha would respond to one of the threads trying to defend Blak Man sister River was always one of the strong voices on our Kings side. I love that about her. Sister River understood that defending Black Man WAS defending Black Woman and I always knew if I was scanning threads like that, that if sister Rivers name was to come up... she was gon represent on behalf of the Blak Unit :) and so I send this I APPRECIATE YOU SHOUT OUT to her :)

    Hey Triniti,

    Of course, I'm not one to participate in the discussion forum, poetry is more my forte, but I just felt compelled to respond to the positivity of this thread and trin, with the beautiful spirit you possess, I just couldn't leave you out there without a reply...so I have a few people who have inspired me since I've been at Destee's.


    You, Triniti are especially inspiring because you always have a kind word, your love is always shared throughout the poetry forum and you keep it real. Your genuine gracefulness shines thru even in text.
    ....your poetry is funny, inspiring, uplifting and downright good stuff...lol. And your sense of humor, I don't have to tell nobody here about that, gurl you keeps me laughing.
    I want to show my appreciation to you....thank u

    4everluv, well what can I say this wonderful Sister's name says it all. I felt a kindred spirit within her the moment I read her poetry. Another inspiring person who shares her beautiful love poetry and gives love on the board whenever she grace the pages. My appreciation to you and your consistent support , soul twin.


    Coco, not only are you my sister, but you are my best friend. You are a gifted poet in your own right.
    You have a kind heart and a infectious sense of humor. We've been together on Destee's for a long time.
    You invited me here and I must say, it has inspired, growth, friendships and a sense of belonging that keeps me coming back time and time again....thank you, I appreciate you so much.

    Baller, your poetry has uplifted, inspired and challenged me to be the best poet I can be. You are a mega-talent in the poetry forum and a good friend. Destee's place wouldn't be the same without your contributions to the poetry forum. Your river flows and it inspires and touches everyone in its path. I will forever be a fan of your work.
    I appreciate you as a friend and a fellow poet....thank u.


    MetaSaience, I have read your threads from time to time and I am very impressed with the knowledge and wisdom you possess. Your threads are always interesting, informative and you are very patient in your responses and explanations. Please, keep doing what you are doing, people may not respond but they are reading. I appreciate what you are doing at Destee's...thank you.

    Hodee,

    Wow...what can I say about you, you are such a humble sweet man and your poetry reflects that. You are an inspiration simply by being who you are, a peacemaker, a philosopher, a teacher...these are just a few of the uplifting qualities you possess. I appreciate what you contribute to Destee's. Thank you.


    Watzinaname,

    Gurl, you are the epitome of a true black woman, I look at your name and there is "so much in your name" you exemplify the character that Destee's represent. You unify, give love, you embrace, encourage and your poetry is heaven sent. Among other poets you have always been supportive of me and I want to show you my appreciation.....thank u, Sis.

    Queen...

    You are the steady in the storm, you too...always show your love and support when due and I still laugh at your response to thanking me in the premium member forum.... One mo time, Sis. :bellydance: lol
    I appreciate you, keep doing what you do....thank u.

    I could go on and on, but I would be here all day....lol.

    Much love...:luvv:

    Peace and blessings to you all...:grouphug:

    Thank you so much sister for the shout out :) Im humbled and flattered and you know what sister. I was reading what you said about sister 4everluv and how she was like your twin spirit and I realized just how special our sisters are here :) Sister Angelicsage (who isnt a frequenter of the board anymore but we keep in touch still) is a sister I found to be my spirit twin :) and I would have never been graced the opportunity to be in her life if'n it wasnt for this very site here :) and heck even meeting YOU sister!

    Appreciation Shout Out to...

    My Sister Epiphany... Youre so tenderhearted sister its refreshing :) Youre a role model to our children of how a lady should conduct herself. And truly I do think of you and sister 4everluv as kindred twin spirits! lol hehehe both of you so warm and welcoming but sassy and well spoken all in the same breath but this aint my sister 4everluvs shout out yet so imma focus on you lol After seeing your pic on your profile I was convinced that you are a rare kind of beautiful... from the core of your spirit to the glowing brown of your skin :) You are your name sister... a divine manifestation of a woman and I send this I APPRECIATE YOU SHOUT OUT to you :)

    Keeping it moving...



    Contrary to what most think about me... Even if someone doesnt like me lol I dont have any problem appreciating the good things they do. Everybody aint meant to be loved by erryone aiight hehehe having said that...

    Appreciation Shout Out to...

    Brother Lilpea Once upon a time in this Destee.comLand I was a chat moderator and I can tell yall... its wearing and a HEAP of work to play host or hostess in the chat room lol especially if'n you are cyber-tronically retarded like I happen to be from time to time. Nonetheless my own frequency here on the board has been sporadic and when I do come out of hiatus from time to time outside of my sister QueenT its always Brotha Lilpea in there playing music and being the host with the most. Its always important to keep the chat room convo going and forming some semblance of a connection with those who do make their way in so that they can be encouraged to return and its a lot of work and Brotha Lilpea is a faithful chat mod advocate and knowing how wearing that can be im giving an I APPRECIATE YOU SHOUT OUT to him for his dedication his candor and down to earth welcoming spirit in our chat rooms.


    Sister Fine1952... I have never encountered this sister as well but I always enjoy reading her posts. I find her wish to educate and enlighten our people refreshing and so I read her posts as often as possible partially because I dont see too many else putting out the kind of energy that she does and also... I have an admiration for the trait of consistency in ones character. Sister Fine provides a wealth of knowledge and I believe that teachers are an ancestral gift to our people so I send this I APPRECIATE YOU SHOUT OUT to her :)

    Appreciation Shout Out to...

    Brother Soja I'ono what you did to get ya behind banned again lol But I appreciate you wherever you are *sigh* if you are anything brotha soja you are real and honest ESPECIALLY about being real and honest lol I actually think its refreshing but um I send it out into the cyber universe lol my I APPRECIATE YOU SHOUT OUT to you :)


    Sister Zulie... Sister zulie is one of the best things to happen to Destee.com in my opinion. Shes savvy and smart and funny and witty and carefree but conscious. I find her posts informative her blog fun but revealing and I can barely remember what it was like before her and her contributions to the board :) and so I send this I APPRECIATE YOU SHOUT OUT to her :)

    Sister Destee: First, my heart is made glad to see such a strong Black woman who has had the mental and emotional fortitude to survive and SUCCEED in this vast, hellish place of cyberspace. :bowdown: Secondly, I may not, personally, agree with all your decisions here but I do empathize with what you're working WITH and FOR. :bowdown: Third, you have shown yourself to be a loyal supporter to those you deem deserving and strive to be as fair as possible even to those who are not, even championing some who are vilified by others. :bowdown: THANK YOU and I APPRECIATE YOU.

    Brother Clyde Coger: You were the first person to welcome me to Destee and to extend your hand of friendship. You encouraged me in my writing endeavors and have been unfailing in your sincere, Christian love. THANK YOU and I APPRECIATE YOU!

    Sister PurpleMoons: You were the first woman to extend your hand in sisterly friendship to me; and, in your official capacity, you have been fair and honest. THANK YOU and I APPRECIATE YOU.

    Brother Hodee: Rather in verse or in discussion, you are a steady rock. You are a thoughtful man who has a tender heart beating in a strong chest. THANK YOU and I APPRECIATE YOU.

    Sister Triniti424: You are a staunch supporter of Poetry; and, as is evidenced by this very thread, you have a caring soul. THANK YOU and I APPRECIATE YOU.

    There are so many people here that I could say great things about but honestly, I think everyone here has something great that I could say about them. I don't want to leave anyone out and If I tried to mention every last one of them, I would probably miss someone and I would probably never finish.

    We all have something good about us that we share, weather others are open to what we share with them or not, that is up to them and vise versa. Nevertheless, weather people accept our gifts of goodness or not, we should all be acknowledged for the goodness we have inside of us and none of us are exempt from goodness. If we all take the time to nurture the goodness in people that we encounter, I am sure that we would live to see the greatness over come the negative aspects, which are only the result of our good, being ignored.



    Thanks for this thread Triniti424
