    Hello Family,

    Over the years, several Members have asked me, how did i get started. Just recently, Brother Sefirot asked, and because i didn't currently have anything up that chronicled the beginning days, i thought i'd (re)create the page. The link is below.

    Much Love and Peace.

Thanks for taking us down memory lane sis, its a beautiful trip :toast:

    Adorable :)

    The forest is often admired without respect due to the seed that started it.
    That was a wonderful and enlightening story, Sis.
    Before I found this site, I felt like a sane person in an insane asylum (and slowly losing sanity).
    It's good to actually experience the reality that I am not alone.
    The God within you shines. Thank You.

    :terrific:

    Not to be selective-

    But I need to Thank the following people for making me a much, much stronger person inside and out:

    Sistah NNQueen (Queenie)
    Sistah River
    Brotha Isaiah (Bless his heart)
    Brotha Samurai
    Brotha Manasiac
    Brotha Panafrica
    Brotha Radical Faith
    Brotha Info-moetry
    Brotha Keita
    Brotha Omo
    of course: Professor Oldsoul

    But I honestly would NOT have gotten to these people if it were not for Sistah Destee settin' the stage for it all to happen. All of the extensive time spent learning to design the site? I could not handle it myself!

    None of this could have been possible if she did not open the doors to me, or many other people here. It always went through my mind that Sistah Destee will receive payback for all that she has gone through to make this happen for us, and I still believe that. As a matter of fact, words can and will not express what is in store for her due to the many people here who have, and will become 'Warriors' in our Communities.

    I thank you for that 'Testimony,' and hope everyone else comes to recognize how Powerful that is.
