Reflections: my ulaa listserv days

I was going through my yahoo email account and reflecting back about the days when I was into politics. Looking back, it all looks very interesting.

On or about April 26, 2007 some colleagues (actually big brothers) who didn’t like that I became too active in the Liberian immigration (TPS) process decided to go after me. These guys know how to play dirty. And I was an innocent kid who was trying to see if we could get some results. But it was never about results: it had always been about who takes the credit.

These guys (withholding their names) entered my yahoo email and wrote something as if it was coming from me and then responded to it in such a way that scared me.

I had gone to help the OLM (Organization of Liberians in Minnesota) people do some last minute prep work. I used the OLM computer to log into my yahoo mail and there is something there that keeps you logged in on that particular computer default unless you unclick that button. I didn’t know and these guys got into my email box and did what they did.

After writing the email that made it look like I was bragging, then they responded with a title that read like this: HAS MEGALOMANIA SET IN?

To today’s date, I don’t know what megalomania means but it sounded very ugly then. Doesn’t it?

Anyway, I forgive those guys and didn’t take it personal. That is how they were trained to fight.

  1. That was the best decision you took, by forgiven them Daddy; because it is often said in there word of God that we should forgive our fellow human, as God Him self will forgive us.
