    Hello Brothrs and Sistrs

    Often trolling this site for the last two or so years, I have enjoyed many of the thought provoking post you all have shared.

    Not really knowing where to jump in, i never participated in any of the discussions
    (something i truly regret)

    On a new course in life I look forward to engaging you all in any conversation, that adds value to the solution that will help people of african descent; reascend to their true position in the world.


    So members of Destee hello, and look forward to getting to know you all.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    ... And we are glad you signed up NecessaryChaos, although I'm sure your use of the word, trolling, isn't meant in true sense of the term. :toast: ... to happy dialog.


    Peace In,

    awwwwwwwwwwwww ... :blush: ... :love: ... :blush:

    The above is so sweet ... gosh ... you melt my heart ... it's so nice to read ... it is my hope ... thank you.

    It's my belief, that we are our greatest resource ... each other ... if we could only harness it properly.

    We're so smart, we know so many things, have had so many experiences, have made it out of so many tight spots, have overcome in so many ways ... that we can be a great help to each other ... just sharing how, when, and why ... giving each to know, that they are not alone in their challenge ... whatever it is.

    I Love USSSS ... YAAAAAAAAAAY ... Thanks for taking me there ... :love:

    Thanks for your kind consideration. Thank You.

    Much Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Destee

    actually my old profile, never used it.

    Changed it because the moniker really doesn't fit... any more


    I guess, you can say since "i awoke"(became aware of my african heritage)

    I have realized the reason life (nature,god, the universe-respectably with ever force/deity you identify with) provides adversity, is so we may grow and achieve a new level of potential

    I know in my life, and pretty sure in most people's lives we all can find at least one instance where the adversity in life (no matter what form it came in horrible job, a crazy ex, or just hit rock bottom) made us better people after we learned what ever lesson we were supposed to, and put it into applicable use in our lives

    made us (and me) better for it.

    And if you really think about it, that greater that adversity the better we were for it after.


    And Honestly, thats also how i view the plight we as people of african descent face when it comes to the ails the plague our people (weather they be physical, mental, and/or spiritual)


    So applying the same kindergarten logic, I realized the same must be true of the adversity life gives people of African descent in the form of white supremacy.

    Think about it- what race of people can handle all of what has been done to people of african descent and still constantly grow and become better for it.

    Know I don't need to say it but us (people of African descent)

    And it's because our potential is so phenomenal, so great...

    It's hard for most of us to comprehend...


    But i get it...

    "Life's adversity, do nothing but provide insight and opportunity on how to reach your true potential...
    so now i embrace the necessary chaos need to grow and become better."

    Well said NecessaryChaos, I fully understand where you are going and how you arrived ... Who but the original people could withstand the perils of life? Not any other people group could, no, not one.


    Peace In the Spirit of Sankofa,
