    Topic: Sisterhood​



    Greetings!

    I'd like to thank all the sisters who have participated in Sister Chat. Recapping our chat topics thus far, we began by uplifting ourselves in sisterly praise, then we talked about various health related issues: Breast Cancer, Cleansing, Depression, and Stress Management. Other than becoming better informed about the aforementioned topics, our coming together has also afforded us a chance to see different sides of one another. It has also allowed us to bond. As sisters, there's much that we share.
    So, at this point, I would like to talk about Sisterhood at Destee.com. Let's think about, and be ready to discuss:
    1.What does sisterhood mean to you?
    2.How important is it that we bond as sisters at Destee.com?
    3.Have you felt a sense of sisterhood here? Elaborate.
    4.Looking ahead, in addition to our weekly chats, would you like to join together in any other endeavors?
    5.What chat topics would you like to discuss in the future?

    Hope to see you there!

    Greetings!

    I'd like to thank all the sisters who attended Sister Chat last night. We got as far as answering the first 3 discussion questions. The answers that our sisters gave were beyond beautiful. We were unable to get a log of our chat. The synopsis that I'll give here pales in comparison but, for summary sake, here goes...
    1. What does sisterhood mean to you?
    Some of the responses were that sisterhood is: A strong bond, a connection we've had since the Motherland, a relationship wherein we can just be ourselves without the mask, something that we as Black women share without even realizing it sometimes.
    2. How important is it that we bond as sisters at Destee.com?
    The general consensus was that it was definitely important, having found a bond here that is lacking elsewhere. This website has become a haven of sorts. A home away from home, a place where we can breathe. However, even with that being the case, it takes a while to build trust. Trust takes time, and we just have to build on that with each step we take. Let's consider Sister Chat to be a step in the right direction.
    3. Have you felt a sense of sisterhood here? Elaborate.
    Examples were given of how other members have reached out to help in times of need, and how much that assistance was appreciated. A point was made that we shouldn't wait until times of crisis to bond. And that perhaps, if that bond was firmly in place, the crisis may not have gotten to the point of becoming unmanageable.

    Our last two questions, which had to do with possible goals outside of Sister Chat, and additional chat topics, will be discussed during next week's chat.

    Well sisters, let's continue to move forward. I'm looking forward to our onward progression. :) :wave:
