    $$RICH$$~Thanks it's always good to look at the brighter side.:)

    GA~ A mess it is. Thanks for the love.

    For years we have been insearch of a descriptive name for our people to be proud of.....it is not the descriptive name that makes us proud....it is our actions and character.

    not living in a country of our own...

    we're still trying to define who we are...for them.

    feeling the evolution.

    We are not defined by what they call us

    but what we call ourselves...what do we feel comfortable with?
    Nice piece poetess!

    To quote Ashford and Simpson, "Ain't it a shame, can't give it a name?"
