Just wanted to say Thanks to all of you for bringing a new level consciousness to me about my blackness. Many of you have given me insights that I would not have found on my own. Long story short is I have lost most everything that I have held dear to my heart & soul. My wife of 14 years has chosen to leave me for another man, and with her goes the children. To say the least, I am devastated. Family means everything to me and to lose them is almost more than I can bear. I truly feel as if there is no tomorrow for me, as all I saw was my family's life. My world was them, and now it is gone. I wish I could say that there is a chance that this will work out, but I would only be lying to myself. It is all gone now, and I feel nothing but pain & misery. Anyway, again I will be out for awhile, though I will pop in when I can muster something to offer besides negativity (which is about all I'm feeling now). I wish nothing but the best to you all and this site. Peace!
