Black Women BloggerNot everyone will understand my message. Not everyone will love my message. However, another BWE sister may share the same message and a person's life will be significantly changed. Will I feel slighted? Will I feel cheated? No, because my soul's purpose is to change the lives of those in need.
It's very sad to know that there are some who will attempt to kill my reputation because my message is similar to theirs. My similar message may have reached particular people who were not spiritually touched by the other messenger's message.
As someone stated, "There is nothing new under the sun. It's similar to a physicist who wins the Nobel Peace Prize. Physics isn't new; but the NPP recipient just expanded on the theory." The BWE Movement is similar in principle. The pioneers--Evia Moore, Khadijah, Faith, and Aimee.--have provided the platform for many of us to voice our heart-felt ideologies. Their voices have catapulted the courage of other BWE bloggers to tackle the problems many Black women and their families face.
Although I have never met Evia, Khadijah, Aimee, or Faith in person, they have become my virtual mentors because their messages are very important to the survival of Black women and their families. There are others who I admire and include in my spiritual sisterhood: Deborrah Cooper, Christelyn Russell-Karazin, Lorraine Spencer, Cher Smith, Sylvia Childress, Kimberly Jessy, and many more.
Our message will continue. My message will continue. There is room for all our messages because there are other sisters out there who need us. It doesn't matter whose message is received as long as it makes a difference in the lives of Black women and their families. Our destinies are united. There is no way around that fact.
