Comment by HASSAN RAHEEM replying the Blog By Harold Bell.
A CALL TO ALL REAL MEN IN AMERICA: Inside the Mind of Harold Bell flow words of wisdom and truth. Every real man should take a stand from Grand Pa down to the youth.

The Great Hosea Williams said it in a regulated ritual..."UN BOUGHT & UNBOSSED!"
I am thankful for those who have need to BUY & BOSS... Without their presence, I could not know and would not know my strengths and my weaknesses. To you all I WILL FOREVER BE GREATFUL. I finally got it!
To whom it may concern:
As of Friday, August 5, 2008, Hassan Artiste Raheem has freed himself from any physical,
spiritual or mental bondage. And as testiment to new found 'FREEING OF MY MIND, I would like to offer this little poem called "IF" by Rudiard Kippling.... to answer the QUESTION: WHERE HAVE ALL THE LEADERS GONE?


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream -- and not make dreams your master;
If you can think -- and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings -- nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And -- which is more -- you'll be a Man, my son!

-- Rudyard Kipling

Most men have not been challenged this way to know what they would do but I have. I for one 65 years young Black Man can Truthfully say.... "I AM A REAL MAN and I AM A FREE MAN!" ... are you... CAN YOU CHECK YES IN EVERY CATEGORY OF THIS POEM? OR HAVE YOU EVEN GONE THROUGH THE FIRE YET? Let's keep this forum going and WOMEN are free to join in as well. We want to know... WHERE HAVE ALL THE LEADERS GONE?
Thank you Harold Bell.

I kwnow that you too have some stories to tell Breezy. Thanks for checking in.

Greetings Hassan,
The poem caused chills to appear on my arms.
I have placed it in a special space and will read it frequently.
It touched in a few places that haven't been disturbed in a long time.
Gratitude with Assurance.

We are here perfectly designed for this great hour .
By A Wise Creator who perfects his creation.
From these shall come to birth a new creation .
Now some have drawn many conclusions about our unique experiences
of why we must have trials to experiences what we must .
But the World and its Future is in balance depending upon your experiences
for which the new to come into existence for they Must .
The First Shall Be The Last And The Last Shall Be The First.

Now We Work Hard To Bring In This New Earthly Reality To The World!
Bro Wisdom2See
Thanks Ar Lena, this poem i learned when i was very young. My older sister had to momorize it for school. She repeated it over and over and i had to listen to her recite so i learned it too. IT has been a great aspiration in my life to lift me up when things are really crazy and i don't innerstand why.... it was "IF" that got me through up until this very day.
Thank you Brother Wisdom2See, we all are here at the appointed time to do our appointed assignments. WACP Community is a History Book being established in Real Time. No one can come into this community until it is time and some can not come in at all. We 389 collectively Members have posted 1,849 photos, 484 videos, 239 music tracks, 145 forums, 178 blogs 17 groups and 12 Power Teams. You may say... "well there are lots of other ning sites some with much greater numbers what makes WACP so special?" You are the difference... it only takes one to make the difference and the difference is YOU. Now Let's Get BUSY LEADERS!
You have the Feartured Forum for today.
Ar Lena
The poem touched my spirit. Namaste, I bow to you with much respect my brother.
Peace and blessings. This is the question of the century for African People. Grassroots African Leaders must come up with a definition for what is a true, committed, knowledgeable, action-oriented leader is in the 21st century. We have a lot of people doing a lot of talking, wearing the African garb, have changed their names, and are generally involved in African based events and activities. However, many of these same people are not promoters of unity consciousness, work consistently and scientifically for short and long term development of African people, study the oppressors systems and programs which keep us dysfunctional then propose and implement actual measurable solutions and general just engage in real strategic warfare against those who work and plan everyday to keep Africans, especially men, from becoming equal partners in world governance. I for one have put my energies for developing future visionary leaders into our babies/children/youth and students. We can not change many elders who are holding on to the same strategies and tactics of the 60s and 70s. I teach the brothers I come in contact with to learn from that time but develop and implement new and innovated plans of action. True leadership is not born into any person but is develop through education, culture, experience and knowledge. Until us, as African people, the 10% which have the above traits unify those who want to keep us enslaved mentally will always prevail.
i agree with you Brother Sameer... The Minister is as close as they come individually and as a collective army of believers in the now times. Now to get cooperation from and backup on an ongoing basis from those non Muslims who attended the March. I wish we could find new language which could replace the religeous terms which divides us everytime. The Message can be exact and to the point but the names of Religion will always be the disounting factor... He or she is a Muslim or He or She is a Christian.
It take one to know one. You must be one in order to recognize... Thanks!
Warren G, you are doing a great persistent job with the youth on the AUC campus. Keep up the good works Leader.

Thank you / please e-mail me IF!
