They say that a picture paints A THOUSAND WORDS. I am really happy to see this organization moving forward. With patience and planning this could be the birth of the MOVEMENT FOR CHANGE.
Thanks much Claude! I will add that you have a major say in what happens here too Claude.
Well done and Congrats. Best wishes to the organization.
Thanks...........everyone is invited to be a part of this pan organization
Salah: By joining this organization you took a step in the right direction (I think) towards the MINISTRY OF PAN. It is going to be a LONG ROAD and maybe you are not going to PAVE IT ALL THE WAY.
But that is the nature of PROGRESS!!!
Good luck guys. Bertel, I know you tried to get me involved with the movement. I will visit you in September.
Congratulations to all... you have my support, 150%.
Thanks Jerry! Please speak with Salah as soon as he returns.
I must say I am disappointed with MYSELF for not knowing about this meeting, I thought I was in this from the beginning but somehow I took a wrong turn along the way and got lost, I am surprised though that Salah and Cary did not even hint or say Junior boy you know bout the meeting in Belmont? Lets get this straight I BLAME MYSELF for not knowing, and if Sala and Cary really know me they know I always own up, as I am doing now, and move on, so.
Congratulations to all, I truly wish the best if even because I have a 19 and 15 year old very active in the pan world both with Cary and birdsong, and I know only good can come from this for their future.
I have no plans on forgiving myself for missing this first meeting, simply because I am to old to to join a race after it has started. I could not handle the insults and ridicule when I tried to contribute on this forum, and my way of dealing with anything I do not like is to stay away from it, that is why I was not as active as I should have been, so I missed out. forward ever backwards never. OUT
Cary: There are leaders (like Bertel Gittens and Salah Wilson) and followers. This organization needs LEADERS. We can't let the TAIL wag the DOG!
Thank you My Brother I will stay as close to you and yours as I always have, and my children, you have as always. To reiterate I blame myself for not knowing, and I am accustomed to living with the results of any mistakes I have made in life before this is only one more.
