    In light of the 14th :birthday: celebrations, I thought it would be a treat to pay homage to the success of this Site by sharing something you didn't know until your humble beginnings here. Which is really us collectively...knowing that we all have brought something to the forums and taught, inspired, or uplifted one another!

    Ok, I'll go first:)...prior to being a member, I didn't know how very little exclusively Black owned, operated and funded organizations exist. Until my exposure here, I never really thought about how much power those that fund an organization have!

    Greetings Sister Chevron! Yes, yes, plenty of relationships birthed along the way:grouphug:! I admit it has been a blessing to have many folks cross my path, including you. I've met so many brothers and sisters from different backgrounds and experiences, and each one has brought me something to carry forward.

    Thank you for sharing:)

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......New to message boards, discussion forums, etc...my first year, this website opened my eyes to a real black presence in cyberspace on the Internet. I'm glad it was my first experience being on the Net, as they say, and wouldn't change a thing, if I had it to do all over again.

    Peace In,

    Greetings Brother Clyde! Yes, this was my first forum experience as well. And with Destee.com being my first experience, the bar was set pretty high, so moving to another forum site, as many do, is not an option for me!

    Thank you for sharing:toast:

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Yes ma'am, what else I've noticed is the return factor; its a real pleasure to see and read those that return after being away awhile. There's something about this place, lol.

    Peace In,
