    THE BLACK FAMILY PLEDGE

    ~~~~Maya Angelou

    BECAUSE we have forgotten our ancestors,
    our children no longer give us honor.

    BECAUSE we have lost the path our ancestors cleared
    kneeling in perilous undergrowth, our children cannot find their way.

    BECAUSE we have banished the God of our ancestors,
    our children cannot pray.

    BECAUSE the old wails of our ancestors have faded beyond our hearing,
    our children cannot hear us crying.


    BECAUSE we have abandoned our wisdom of mothering and fathering,
    our befuddled children give birth to children they neither want nor understand.

    BECAUSE we have forgotten how to love, the adversary is within our
    gates, an holds us up to the mirror of the world shouting, "Regard the loveless"

    Therefore we pledge to bind ourselves to one another, to embrace our lowliest, to keep company with our loneliest, to educate our illiterate, to feed our starving, to clothe our ragged, to do all good things,
    knowing that we are more than keepers of our brothers and sisters.

    We ARE our brothers and sisters.

    IN HONOR of those who toiled and implored God with golden tongues, and in gratitude to the same God who brought us out of hopeless desolation, we make this pledge.

    How can we discuss Unity & not DisUnity-The Scars of Shame, deadly poison
    within us?

    Divine Queen goddess Maya Angelou, I bow and salute the Divine Truth/Reality in you.:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

    Many of us have forgotten to be the Divine BECAUSE.


    "When a cause comes along and you know in your bones that it is just, yet refuse to defend it--at that moment you begin to die; and I have never seen so many corpses walking around talking about justice."
    Hon. Mumia Abu-Jamal

    "The ends you serve that are selfish will take you no further than yourself: but the ends you serve that are for all, in common, will take you into eternity." Hon. Marcus Garvey

    If you cannot do it, if you are not prepared to do it...then you will die.
    You race of cowards, you race of imbosiles, you race of good for nothings. If you cannot do what other men have done, what other nations have done, what other races have done, then you yourself shall die. Hon. Marcus Garvey

    You know, when the ancestors take over you just can't stop them when they do something (seven year old goddess Autum Ashante).

    Allow your mind to wander into the ABYSS of Infinity, and allow your mind to comprehend what you see. There you will be in the circle that reveals the Divine Truth, and that which is Divinely Real.( Hon. Osiris)
