I enjoyed the retreat to camp Minisink a lot. I have never been to a camp before. When we got to camp Minisink, there was a bit of separation between the Blacks and White, but after our great cookers cook up a beautiful dinner, we had a rap session to see why the whites don’t communicate with the Black cadre members. After we discuss our different views, I feel us Black and White cadre member got a better understanding of each other. After we did get an understanding of each other, we got into different activities with each other. So I say that it was unity up there in Camp Minisink.
I also feel that the South Bronx Youth Service System is really going to progress. I believe it is really going to work out. I would also like to say is that Mustafa (Eric White) really keeps our Cadre together and also gives us a good understanding of something which we don’t really understand, like on different problems to do with the Youth Service System, plus he could bring a good understanding to relating to Black and White Cadre members.
All I have to say is more power to the Youth Service System and Right On to Mustafa.
