Dear Family.....

Dear Family,

First and foremost, let me say, “If you’re reading this letter, it’s NO MISTAKE! I’ve decided to write and publish this letter because I care about YOU….Family! Not because we share DNA but because WE SHARE A STORY THAT HAS RAVISHED AND TORMENTED US FOR TOO LONG NOW!” The purpose of this letter is to express my deep desire to see My Family Prosper. Look around you…..what do you see? What do you hear?

I’m seeing and hearing a cry for help! Is it our Race? Is it our Planet? Wait….maybe it’s our Universe, trying to get our attention; trying to tell us “It’s Time for Healing!” It’s time to return to Wholeness; before daddy left, before mommy put providing first and nurturing third…yeah, third; right after her new boyfriend. Time to return to wholeness; before that man decided to use his power to overpower you and use your body for his selfish satisfaction…Before you had eight brothers and sisters to compete with…Before your disappointment turned into rage and your rage turned into a fist to a women’s face….Before you were told you were black and ugly; before a line of men waiting for their turn got to prove the haters wrong. It’s time for you to restore your ambition to the moments before they told you that you were stupid and would be less than even your deadbeat daddy…Time to Forgive your father for choosing his wife and kids over you, “the bastard baby”….Time to pull God out of the sky and make the relationship real. Oh, did I say, “It’s Time for Healing!”….Time to stop taking so much pleasure in being mommy and daddy at the cost of building insecurity in your child’s soul….Time to hear your baby girl when she tells you the new man in your life is touching her…Time for Loving; loving the child in you who still has a picture of his mother being beaten in the foreground of his mind…Time to go back in time when games were played with a deck of cards and not with a woman’s head….Back in time to where you didn’t need three women to make yourself feel useful. Let me say it again, “It’s Time for Healing!”

And this healing must start with “Self”; no more can we continue to birth this Broken, Enslaved, Painful Mentality into this world. It’s time to stop saying, “I’ve done everything I can, I just don’t know what else to do” because until you HEAL ‘Self” everything you do, you say; will be in vain. No more can we teach, “DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO”, we must be the change we want to see in the world and in our children. A new season has arrived; this is the season for “Less Talk and More Action”….Less snickering behind the backs of the ones we say we love, less competition, less shame and blame, less solutions for everyone else’s problems and none for our own; time to manage our own homes, lives, relationships…It’s also time for honesty; first with ourselves, then with others…..No more sharing the highs and hiding the lows….Certainly, we are human first and the many hats we wear and become second. Let’s retire the phrase, “I told you so” and let’s make popular, “How Can I Help You?” And when we help, let’s be humble and not publish and air it to the whole world….. Let’s get our egos in check and be Family! Let’s not be afraid to tell the people we love that they need to do better, but mostly…Let us be an example.

Let us not walk with our noses up because our addictions are more acceptable than the next person’s. The distance between the drug addict, the morbidly obese, and the woman beater is less than we think. It’s all UNHEALED emotions trying to be seen, heard, and expressed. So let’s humble ourselves then start with ourselves. Oh yes, “It’s Time for Healing, Forgiveness, and Self-Love!”

Lastly, I leave you all with these words:

“We Heal Our World

When We Heal Our Families and

We Heal our Families when

We Heal Ourselves.”

Peace and Love and Be Absolutely Blessed!
