A Virgin Meadow's Winter's Prayer: A Story of Love
Karl and Karen first met at Howard University as freshmen in 1969. At that time Howard was in the second year of a great awakening of Black Consciousness as students were demanding the University be more “relevant” to the needs and interests of the Black Community. Understanding the principle that the “power to define” is the “power to control,” as articulated in the book Black Power, the seminal work of Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) and Charles Hamilton, they changed their names to Kwesi and Kemba. This began their quest to become the change they ought externally, in their own lives. Further, realizing that a strong Black Community is predicated on strong Black families, they committed to marriage. Seven years and two children later Kwesi finds himself in an African-American owned bookstore. The store is owned and operated by a sister named Auset
SaNuu. This encounter becomes the fuel which reignites his desire to recommit to 'becoming the changeʼ he sought, to strengthen the Black Community.
The rest is his-story.
Yes We CANcer
IF I HAD TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN
Diagnosed with Stage 3 Prostate Cancer in February 2021, Ur Aua Hehimetu Ra Enkamit Ph. D. chronicles his journey from then to February 2022, when by virtue of a PSA test it was determined his cancer is nondetectable. Already a Vegan, upon receiving his diagnosis, he transformed his diet and lifestyle and engaged in “alternative therapies,” which enabled Dr. Enkamit to reduce both the tumor size and PSA number by more than 50% in 6 months (his “Impactful Period (IP)). This fact is verified by the lab reports included in this book. Upon witnessing the transformation of his cancer, during that IP, Denise Sutherland Phillips, MD suggested this book be written. It should also be noted that the protocols, products and practices followed by Dr. Enkamit were not specific to or for cancer of the prostate but could benefit people dealing with other forms of cancer as well. In researching for this book Dr. Enkamit was afforded the opportunity to look back at his life and this retrospection can and does serve as a light which can help guide us out of this cancer malaise. The American Cancer Society states, 1 in 3 persons in the United States will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. Therefore, we can ill afford the luxury of ignoring the possible impacts of this “dreaded” disease. We should all learn as we can NOW, to mitigate cancer’s future impacts. The old idea that cancer is the result of a singular input, “smoking =lung cancer” must be broadened with the understanding that our overall environment must be evaluated. We can no longer put the entire weight of this problem on known carcinogenic behaviors = cancer. It is true that smoking can and does contribute to cancer in the lungs and elsewhere but it’s contribution is accentuated by other factors in the environment. If 1 out of every 3 fish in a “pond” is diseased, shouldn’t we take a closer look to at the “pond”, their environment, for solutions? Or, as spoken by Dr. Francis Collins, former Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), “Genetics loads the gun, environment pulls the trigger.” Yes We CANcontrol Our Environment!!
