    Hello Family,

    This community is a dream come true for me. From the moment i stumbled onto the Internet, i saw the potential for us having our own community. A place for us, by us, and about us ... positive, uplifting, peaceful, and relaxed. A refuge from the assaults we face daily, a place where we get to simply be ourselves.

    So for me, it is a dream come true.

    What does this community mean to you?

    Thanks for sharing.

    :heart:

    Destee

    Well that is hard to say.. it does mean a lot to me

    I agree with you Destee and $$Rich$$.

    Where I see a slight difference is it's " a place where we get to simply be ourselves."

    We know some come in rough from places across the United States.

    But thats the family of America. Even a ruff neck fellow likes to hug someone and be hugged. Wants accolades from those they communicate with and hang out with.

    Many come, and find they need to change. ( just enough to drop the mask. ) What they quickly realize is that this is a place to grow, be creative and contribute to something bigger and more than themselves. Change is good. Just enough to get along, promote harmony, and curb all rough edges.

    " most def a wonder land where i ( we ) can come and
    release daily enjoy friends and feel free from stress write and
    comfort others as well this community "

    your absolutely correct here $$RICH$$

    This community promotes positive forward thinking, if you want to be a part of it's existance. YOU MUST FIND WITHIN YOURSELF A BALANCE FROM TRADITIONAL THINKING. Traditional thinking is going with the crowd, cooperating just to fit in, and often playing others down to lift yourself up.

    Well I'll tell you it's not tolerated here. :nono: Everyone on the web has been in a chat room and know you have to get along, to get it on. Unlike a chat room this place is expanded into more than that. Yes we have chat, and that too is a wonderful place to spend your days or nights.

    This is a place for me where during the day if I get a thought and become overwhelm with an emotion. I can flow in here, jot that down, read some of the other wonderful folws posted here and comment.

    I know DESTEE is here for me to release that idea and thought a story or news. It's a wonderful thing. If you spend a half hour here, even less if your eyes wide open, you will know within minutes. THIS PLACE ROCKS! have fun Family.

    It's hard being positive, experts have proven being negative is simplier, and more acepatable in this present day world. You recieve praise quicker, and from many faster. But we know that is false LOVE and ADMIRATION. :smokin:
