Do you Remember?
a time not to long ago filled with joyous noise of family, friends and community. When we would gather and enjoy one anothers company just for the sake of it without arguing fighting and bickering. Do you remember when Family was the intimate core unit that kept everyone close and was the source where every member could gather strength and support in times of need.
Do you remember neighborhoods where everyone knew one another and as a child the neighbors would watch over you, keep, you, protect, and discipline you when needed. Do you remember when? Do you remember just yester year we raised our children with pride instilling precious values and morals that were passed down to us generation after generation creating strong unbreakable bonds. Do you remember? Do you remember when men were men and highly esteemed their women giving them the utmost in respect willing to lay down everything to edify his Queen. Do you, I say do you remember when a man would raise his family despite the odds that were against him. Do you remember when women would raise there family. Being the core unit in which all depend.
Do you remember the morning breakfast and evening meals prepared by loving hands, do you, I say again and again do you remember the touch of the hand that wielded healing caresses that calmed the nerves but could deal chastising blows to correct a naughty hand.
Do you remember?Do you remember the family and what role it played in keeping everyone together. How important it is to preserve and protect and how a race of people would face certain doom if they were to neglect. Do you remember how the families supported their communities and vise versa the communities provided structure and support to the families. Oh how soon we forget within a generation of neglect. So when you look out into the world and ask how and why it has come to be I need you to remember how it came to be. That in instances of neglect when we choose not to correct, an individual who has forgotten the code of respect then we do a disservice to ourselves and them. No man or woman is an island unto themselves as we all are linked and we will all celebrate together or fail together. PLEASE REMEMBER !DDM.(c) 2014 Do you remember?
