Peace and Blessings Family,

This community is more interested in your words, than the words of others.

Anyone can copy and paste the words of others, disseminate someone else's thoughts, but it takes a bit more effort to come up with words / thoughts of your own.

The very process of articulating your own thoughts sharpens you. It makes you better. You don't really get better by regurgitating someone else's thoughts, for they get all the credit for that.

I am more interested in what you have to say, what you think, versus what some other author thinks.

Even with all of the great works already published, we as a people still face the challenges that we do. This might suggest that those words / thoughts are not enough alone, that new ones are needed to go along with them.

If we settle on repeating what others have said only, then we risk never moving forward.

Your unique words, experiences, and perspectives are more in line with what this community is about, its purpose, than the words of others.

I'm honored by those of you who articulate your own thoughts, graciously sharing them.

It's truly an honor ... an example for our children ... as well as hope for our tomorrows.

Much Love and Peace.

:heart:

Yes Sister MsInterpret ... i don't mean to take anything from those who have already put their words / thoughts on the table, that others use regularly. They obviously have said some great things worthy of mentioning, but that should not be enough for us. Something should be sparked within, that gives rise to our own words, our own opinions, using those already published to bolster ours perhaps, but not lean on them totally and completely ... as if we have no mind of our own. We do have minds, great minds, and it is the thoughts and words that come from us that i am most interested in reading / hearing ... as all the others are for the most part ... easily researched and/or attainable.

I believe the answer to our ills will come from the minds less read ... you, me, one of us ... our thoughts.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
