Today’s behaviors (culture) still reflects the survival rules our ancestors crafted to survive slavery and the brutal decades that followed. The Ancestors gifted us with today, a time where we can in fact choose a new path (culture) and craft a new future. It is time for us to call a time out, ReThink Everything, and act.
