For All Points-Of-The-View.
Over the years many of us have made countless new year’s resolutions that we sometimes kept for a few months, a few days and in some cases a matter of minutes. We can surely agree that many of us have fell short on keeping most individual resolutions but also have fallen far short on our collective new year’s initiatives that otherwise may have had a positive impact on our community and therefore our people had we been able to exhibit more discipline.
Well, one thing about life here on the physical plane….as long as we are alive…we have another chance to try again.
So as a member of the conscious community I would like to ask all of my brothers and sisters, young and old, who have the strength, the heart and conviction
To join me in making a pledge,
that this time we will keep……that we must keep… in order for ourselves, our children, as well as the many generations to come to survive in this ongoing battle we find ourselves in.
January 1st 2012
I (We) make a pledge, to ourselves and to our people, that from this day, January 1st 2012 forward, I (We) will engage in dialog, conversation and planning….. whether it be in Church, the Masjid, family gatherings or community functions….regarding what I (We) can do to promote, organize and initiate Self Determination for ourselves and for our people.
Let us further our pledge to:
Teach and developing our youth first and foremost, “Ourselves”
Organize and open progressive, “Afrikan Centered” educational centers for our youth.
Organize and establish an Afrikan centered Educational master model for Black Communities that can be duplicated where and when necessary across the country.

Organize to up
Organize our youth our community and our people to re-connect with our brothers and sisters and the struggles in Afrika our Motherland. Our struggle and ultimate liberation is a global one…..we must not let them fool us or our children into thinking otherwise.

Does this sound like too much to do??
NOT FOR THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF THE EARTH!
To our leaders

My dear brothers,
Greetings. I truly appreciate the comprehensive pledge above. We have several groups here in Indy that are working toward various facets of the pledge and doing so diligently. What I think might enhance our singular efforts is to develop a collective consciousness, perhaps a Think Tank. By networking together, we might accomplish more collectively, than singularly. Your thoughts? Peace and blessings to you and yours during 2012 and beyond.
I too, pledge support of these ideas as well. Here in Baltimore, many of these ideas are being implemented as we speak. ABIBIFAHODIE!!!
The only way we are going to create a better people and planet is by coming together and working together . . .
Thus, I too, am here to work along side those who want to continue building more supportive communities and greater opportunities for our young generation . . .
Blessings in abundance every new day . . .
I have taken the pledge
AWESOME, I agree, and is taking the PLEDGE!!!
I agree to the pledge.
This is a great first step that we talk about everyday of every year and now we must put it in and make things happen or suffer from not believing we need our own. One question that I have which no ones has ever answered why are we still calling ourselves African when we know that is the White Man who conquered so called Africa. We must break all the chains that keep us in slavery! And I mean all in order for us to be a free people!
