A letter to me

Dear younger me:

Do you remember the first time we met? It was at the crossroads. Remember how we stood for what seemed like days pondering the path to take. I remember you telling me, as you pointed to the left and saying this way is crowded and even though there was safety in numbers, everyone looked the same and follows the same patterns. But I remember the unhappy expressions plastered on their phiz, as if they pondered their own individual worth based as they continued to sacrifice. Remember how we were thrown aback at the sight and how it seem like we didn't move for day, maybe even weeks,  watching them day after day, with pretty things, money, hearts filled with dreams they had not dreamed. Remember the words they spoke and it they confused us, it was if they read them from a script, one that purposely made us feel worthless, because we had no pretty things, our things were old and raggedy and sometimes torn.
Remember the day we choose a path with only a lantern in our hands to light the way. Remember how with tears in our eyes we tread through the storms while the others took shelter on back porches casting reflections and telling the stories not their own.
Remember how each day we prayed with tired feet and how our reflection, although; still a shadow took each step we took, with little money, and no pretty things, but our dreams are our dreams and our story, our story. Do you remember? I can.  It seems like only yesterday we stood at the crossroads, and even though we've made many steps since, cried many tears since that day suffered many trying times and heartbreaks. We've seen hope die in the darkest of the night and the coming of the dawn, but no matter the hills and valleys and with only a lantern to light the way we continue.  And I'd like to say how grateful I am to have taken the journey with you.
Thank you

The Reflection of a Story

Confucius once said from birth to death is the reach of man, and that in time the pains of the heart will heal like wounds to the flesh. But if each year of our life is only a chapter in the novel of our lives, and like with any good book, we are left changed in some way. But now we must go on pass this moment; and although the tears of grief has descended; we must remember the masterpiece  our beloved son, brother, cousin, and friend crafted each day of his life. So let us recall each day how his story made a difference in the lives of others, and how at the story's end; he slipped the surly bonds of earth; on a journey through the stars; to touch the face of God.
Safe Travels
I love you

New Policies and The E-Learning Center

This morning in the Saturday Meeting the topic was on the E-Learning Center and the policies surrounding the platform. The general idea behind the Center is to free up calls to the Project Manager that seeks to side step the process. The bar-code on the newly design form will also enact with Gemini cyber security  and be more precise in detecting forms that have been altered.
When the form are completed and pass cyber security, potential program host will then be assigned to the E-Learning Center for courses on how to broadcast on the MCR stream. A sound recording of your commercial is to be sent to the MCR Studio to be placed in the MCR Library for upcoming release. Once the potential host has at the minimum of five episodes in the Library and upcoming launch date will then be placed on the stream.
If the show is to be a live show or a pre-recorded show will be determined by what was indicated on the form. The potential will be allowed to change the matrix only before the courses are complete after the training there can be no changing the matrix.
Potential host must pass the courses with at least 80% or will not be allowed to broadcast on the MCR stream.
For those individuals that have the potential to become Station Managers there will be separate courses on how to run a Station.
The E-Learning Center doesn't replace MCR-Global Support in any way but will hopefully diminish the need to contact support for minor operator errors.
The E-Learning Center is set to launch in mid-August on this year.
Rattler Publishing and Gemini will start writing the policies next month regarding the center and the new stream.
A test of the virtual studio is scheduled to next Wednesday. It is the intent of Rattler Publishing and Gemini to have one live show that covers current events on a weekly and weekend bases. Nasrene Muhammad and Ursula Turray have not came to an agreement on the style and matrix of the program thus far.
Rattler Publishing is also moving into the next evolution of publication and redesigning the way potentials literary authors publish their works through Rattler Publishing.
Gemini is working on a summer special for first time minority subscriber to their services.
David and William will be re-configuring the MCR website, but it is unclear of they will allow the chat option on the site which will enable listeners to post comments about the program while the program is in progress. In my best guess, I believe they will hold off on the chat option because it works better with a live show because no one monitors the room during pre-recorded programs.
