    Let me start us off

    I first came here , lost , lonely for networking friends .
    I was invited to vist here where i met destee on Afronet.com
    This Queen single handed said i want to give us something
    she was already a chatter and had chat moving smoothly
    so i visit and loved what i saw here .

    It was like only 5 to 9 of us and many many nights it was just
    myself and destee here I was looking for a playground to write
    my poetry and gosh she was like magic ...whammmmm!!!
    poetry was born here !

    As folks visit and venture in i welcome them with love and respect
    from my heart to the Queen she looked and liked and under her wings
    I went , she guided me and allowed me space taught me a lot and
    stood by me in some of my darkest hours and times .

    This made me not only love Destee.com but her as well and friendship
    was born between us now we like glue stucked together forever
    I compromise her i would always be her eyes and ears and honor her
    great goals and what she have given us , my stay here over the many
    years have been beautiful even with some of the lumps and lies
    the hardship against me here i never once reacted / seek payback or
    retaliate.

    Destee showed me how to take hits and stand strong she instill in me
    the awareness and how to be a leader this one Lady was like a miracle
    worker with a magic wand she created this house and mold it from O-to 28,000 plus
    A simple dream into reality yes Destee.com and Destee she did it and still alive
    after many have fallen to the wasteside and gone !

    We still here after 14 years..............Thank you Destee I love you so much
    You gave me a place a home and your hand in forever friendship I will always
    cherish Destee.com

    I came across this site accidentally browsing the web and I decided to join because it reminded me of another site I use to be a member of called Afrochat.net which in many ways was just like this one. I even met some members who used to be part of that site here. Though Afrochat.net was shutdown I still don't know the reasons behind it. So after reading a couple of posts from different topics here I knew I had to join the site.

    So I want to commend Destee, all the staff and moderators for keeping Destee.com running for 14 years strong now. Although I have never run a site but after being a member of several sites like this one, I know ain't easy maintaining such a high standard for so many years being a public forum. The site is pleasant, very resourceful, and more importantly Pro-Black, which is a rarity online. I hope the site can continue being a place where our people can come to hang out, share knowledge, and have a good time with brothers and sisters everywhere. Destee.com FTW!

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Okay, gotcha...guess I'll copy and paste what I wrote in the media forum and put it here. With this new understanding, I can safely say, MsInterpret will be the first winner, hands down, lol

    Peace In,

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......The song, A Change is Gonna Come...by Sam Cooke, says it all, and captures my first days here back in November, 2006. It was a change that entered my life at a time something significant was needed to fill a void. It signaled I would become involved with bringing to the forefront something unique. So this change, I've come to realize, goes hand in hand with a community of Black People each searching for freedom, unity and survival...and that change is gonna come.

    Peace In,
