    They are right...this is a masterpiece in itself. All storms must thunder, until they reach...the "Secret" :) ...
    And the "Secret" sits in the middle...and knows.

    It's so strange, angelicsage, because just this morning I was thinking about this very issue. I know we are on the same wavelength a lot, my sister, but this is crazy.

    This line is my fave: Making choices to improve the Black Tragedy…

    You are incredible, my friend. This is just a stunning piece of work. :spinstar: :spinstar: :spinstar: :spinstar:
    :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

    You know sage, this piece reminds me of where I spent part of my growing up. At one point, the neighborhood became a drug haven, and folks used to always say that I didn't "look" like I lived around there. Or that I didn't "seem" like I lived there. There is no one way to be Black, no more than there is one way to be white. Didn't mean to go off on a tangent. Your work here just fills the air with Black pride. Props for this one, sister.
