    Peace and Blessings Family,

    The new year is upon us and I wish us all happy days, now and forever.

    While it may be challenging to do, it is incumbent upon us to try, for sanity's sake.

    What we face now, is virtually nothing compared to what our Ancestors had to face.

    No blood has been required of us.

    Yes, some have paid with blood, but probably not any reading this post.

    It is a far cry from the millions of Ancestors that were required to pay in blood.

    I am not suggesting that the blood now being paid does not count, only that it is not as bad for us, as it was for our Ancestors ... and they kept the fight ... they remain encouraged ... they worked, gave, bled, and died hoping it would make a difference for us ... and it has.

    That is all I am saying.

    I want us all to remain encouraged.

    Channel the Spirit of our Ancestors, their determination to survive and make it better for those coming behind.

    Let us all do our part ... whatever part you believe that is for you.

    If they could do it under worse circumstance, surely we can now.

    Remain Forever Encouraged.

    Loving Us!

    :heart:

    from yonder, we came...and, to yonder, we go.

    Queen D., I am encouraged.

    Let us go with joy-filled hearts, and unconditional love, for our brethren....that we might be slow to anger, always ready to lend a hand to those in need of assistance. Allow us to come together, as one, having patience for all those we disagree with...and support for all those we do agree with. Let 2017 find us willing and able to fend off all that the trump administration, and its cronies, hurl at us...and see us better in the end.
    the color of our skin should not mean our death
    the color of our clothing should not mean our death
    the location of our homes should not mean our death
    the size of our bank account should not mean our death
    the desire to rise above the muck that others perceive as our place, should not mean our death.

    make it so.

    encouraged.
