I have often wondered why we have so many Sabesans in continental USA and yet when we organize events or invite folks to our meetings, the turnout has often not been reflective of the numbers we have in this diaspora. In my abstract mind, I ask questions like: Is it the tight work schedules in America that doesn’t allow us to take part? Is it that some don’t like the effort or are some simply not convinced that the venture is worth it? These and many more are the questions that have troubled me as we work on rallying folks behind the annual convention gathering.
Think about it, we can absolutely do better and we will. Let me clearly state that I am not trying to engage in second guessing motives but rather my focus is on the need for Sabesans to belong to SABESA, stand up and be counted, scream and be heard, register and be part of success. For this to happen we need a strong, united, focused and committed SABESA family. It is my belief that “Blood ONLY makes people relatives; Loyalty makes them family”. A SABESA family working along these lines is not a far-fetched dream but a reality grounded in our collective experience.
