Dear Romy, Thank you for sharing your breaking news about NaFFAA. I have to tell you that I am impressed at your resourcefulness in getting information, and would like to thank you for quoting me and part of the email message that I had sent out to some NaFFAA officers regarding my personal views on this matter. I would also like to add though that despite what may appear as a financial crisis in NaFFAA (which by the way is not unique, as this is also happening to hundreds if not thousands of corporations and other organizations, both for profit and non-profit, largely because of the global economic crisis), I respectfully do not agree with your statement that "its demise is just a matter of time". NaFFAA's mission of empowerment is just too important to set aside, in spite of whatever internal or external challenges NaFFAA may have been faced with or may still be facing, its mission is bigger than anyone of us -- founders, officers, board members, supporters, detractors or critics of NaFFAA all taken together. It will be frankly both a challenge to all of us, including yourself, if NaFFAA goes down, just because we failed or refused to participate actively and positively In the empowerment process, both as an individual and as a community. I guess it is always easy to be critical and cynical when one is looking thru a glass door - from the outside peeking in. I just realized myself, as a community leader, that I have been personally guilty of that, too. I have no doubt that you, just like myself and everyone else, would like to be empowered and seen in a positively light. True empowerment comes from within each of us -- which, if harnessed and bundled as one can be truly powerful for our community. Unfortunately, it is something that we have not achieved and could not achieve because we are all too busy looking at the fault and mishaps of others, instead of helping each other out. So I have made up my mind to change my perception and attitude for my own good. I have chosen to create positive change by becoming part of the solution, instead of the problem. I have volunteered to be part of NaFFAA's Development Team. NaFFAA's officers will come and go, but its mission of empowerment will remain. Contrary to what you and others may think, NaFFAA will survive because there are still people out there who care about the community and who believe in a good mission and a good cause. I happen to be one of them. And I think you are too. Please help me make things happen. Together, we can achieve the extraordinary. Together, we can be empowered. That's what this is all about. Thanks and take care Joy
