Black Women Blow theTrumpet

The day I discovered the "black women blow your trumpet" blog was a very wonderful day for me.

It was very refreshing to see that there is a systa somewhere blogging about serious issues that can lead to more important solutions in the lives of women and their environment. I never regretted my commitment to this "online community" as I would love to call Lisa's blog.
She is currently taking the online discussion to another level by starting an initiative where women would feel free to share what they face in their daily lives and receives counseling that we make them feel better and whole no matter their past crippling experiences while keeping their identity if they choose to.

Blogville, I believe we all have one or 2 things to gain and contribute to black women, blow the trumpet blog. Are we there yet?

Can somebori tell me why I'm concerntrating on the word, 'standtallers' instead of concerntrating on this post.

I'm tryna figure out what standtallers means. I'm tryna figure out if it should be 'Tall Standers' instead. LOL.

The problem here is that I will keep thinking about this. *sigh*
