@ Sista Earth and Sky
I had to return to apologize. I was a bit harsh in my response to you and for that I apologize. Had a long day. Kinda tired...but! I came back to let you know that we here at AA.org welcome new members with enthusiasm and delight. We are always open to diversity in opinion, thoughts and wisdom. So welcome. And.....no my sista, I wasn't referring to you...not at all. But! Folks know who though. Don't yall?
Just so you know there are a lot of strong personalities on this board. So don't be discouraged. And please whatever you do...don't take it to heart. If you look through our board's history, you will see we fight all the time here. You just have to get use to how each of us express ourselves. A lot times its war of communication...and every battle is different depending on the topic. You will also find folks here are extremely stubborn in their convictions about their truth. However, we say what we have to say...sometimes it's pretty many times it can get kinda ugly. But the rewards are thought provoking and poignant....and you learn a lot. I learn everyday.
So...just as I say to others I'll say to you... continue to STAND IN YOUR TRUTH. Be your brilliant self. Do your thang my sista. Put anything you want on this AA.org discussion table. Cuz we need "fresh" variety up in here. But most importantly KNOW what you say matters-scream your voice. Even if there are those who may disagree with how it sounds. Just remember...sharing perspectives are all a part of life lessons...the good and the bad. But!
