Dear Global Patriotic Citizens and Friends of African Union and Ethiopia inlcuding Bibal Academy Alumni Colleagues:
Greetings in the name of the father, mother, son and daughter, the ideal family on earth:
It is interesting to note, that in all our life preparation, and experiences, there is no real training, and readiness, for sharing life' s main challenges, and opportunities in the setting of the family, the corner stone of our social and spiritual life.
I am surprised to discover, that in all my travels, and work across the world, and to-date, I have not seen any reliable training and preparation in managing the family in its total networks in any one of the cultures in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Training on how to date, court, engage, marry, choose family time, reproduction, conception, pregnancy, delivery, raising the family from new born to early childhood, later childhood, preschool, school, college and graduate studies.
It is amazing, that we just take chances in the most important part of our lives and yet spend hours navigating the linguistic, mathematical, science, geography, ecology, economy, social studies and all aspects of academic and cultural life, but not the building blocks of family.
Of course the center of the family life, sex and its blessings and repercussions are never dealt with enough detail , and focus and we take it as it comes with no preparation at all.
Unfortunately, the role of the family is defined, and managed by institutions, who have no track record in the business of the family. Like the men dominated faith institutions, and educational centers, that intentionally exclude women who are at the heart of the family life. They control the whole dialogue and formality of family life without any contextual or temporal or practical experience of what makes the family work or not work.
All these religious goons, through out history, and even now in modern times, have been promoting un- natural life patterns of monks and nuns as a natural life style, and, have skewed our schools, work place, and worship environment, by designing them such that there is no real preparation for family life. Imagine allowing a monk who has never had any experience of a family life presiding over social and family affairs. If at all he is an expert is in a life of disengagement and the family which is the center of engagement is allowed to be managed by inexperienced and disinterested parties like churches, mosques and temples, etc.
What an irony of life sor] far? Leaving the affairs of the center of our human existence into the hands of the most incompetent and disinterested parties in our common shared societies be it in the east, west, south or north. It is just unacceptable. Yet, it happens every day. To see and witness, a mother being forced to hand over her child as a suicide bombers by these same goons is such a tragic reality of our day.
Therefore, the social and civic laws, and practice have discriminated against women, especially mothers who are the real divine part of humanity both at home, work, worship place masculinizibg every part of our existence and depriving us the virtues and blessings if the divine feminine part if our lives
The recent massacre at the Army base in the US by an alleged psychiatrist who is meant to comfort and protect the troops is such a sad story and the fact that he was brought down or stopped his massacre by the Divine Feminine police officer us even mire telling!
It is our time, we give the divine space for our feminine self and respect mothers, the real Divine partners and co- creators with Universak Divine that is in all if us
I like the story and we need to have schools that honor and value our feminine self and our mothers , sisters and daughters!
It is our time to change this hopeless state of affairs and make the family the most noble, sacred and scientific of all our common shared existence by spending time, effort and resources to build, protect and preserve and promote it at all level of our modern existence.
The famlly is an idea whose time has come and we should make it a priority and women are at the center of this new paradigm and this story is so critical for us to take it seriously.

The thing is probably 90% of voters who said this was their favorite E-mail never do anywhere near half of the chores listed in here specially having sex without complaining. Or maybe this whole thing is supposed to be funny because no woman ever does all that even in her dreams. Hey thanks for the joke!

A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed home.
He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed:
I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife merely stays at home.
I want her to know what I go through.
So, please allow her body to switch with mine for a day.
God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish.
The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman.
He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate,
Awakened the kids,
Set out their school clothes,
Fed them breakfast,
Packed their lunches,
Drove them to school,
Came home and picked up the dry cleaning,
Took it to the cleaners
Went grocery shopping,
Then drove home to put away the groceries,
He cleaned the cat's litter box and bathed the dog..
Then, it was already 01P.M.
And he hurried to make the beds,
Do the laundry, vacuum,
And sweep and mop the kitchen floor.
Ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an argument with them on the way home.
Set out milk and cookies and got the kids organized to do their homework.
Then, set up the ironing board and watched TV while he did the ironing.
At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables for salad, breaded the pork chops and snapped fresh beans for supper.
He cleaned the kitchen,
Ran the dishwasher,
Bathed the kids,
And put them to bed.
At 09 P.M .
He was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren't finished, he went to bed where he was expected to make love, which he managed to get through without complaint.
The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said: -
'Lord, I don't know what I was thinking.
I was so wrong to envy my wife's being able to stay home all day.
Please, oh! Oh! Please, let us trade back.
The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied:
'My son, I feel you have learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things back to the way they were.
You'll just have to wait nine months, though.
You got pregnant last night.'
