Celebrating Kwanzaa Day 3---Principle of "Ujima", a Swahili word for Collective Work and Responsibility!


The Moon and the Stars light the night sky with hope so that even in darkness we find our way.

At daybreak the Sun rises and awakens the World. Ocean tides shift as fish journey.

Slumbering trees feel the gentle breeze of the Wind and birds greet us with a Morning Song.

All Creations have a purpose and work together in Loving Unity.

As humans, we to must do our part and live our good purpose so that our communities, nations and the World can Prosper in Peace.

Breathe and Exhale Deeply Four Times.  Feel the four chambers of your heart open with Love.
Today, let us honor the Kwanzaa Principle of "Ujima", a Swahili word for Collective Work and Responsibility!
We have a responsibility and an obligation to educate and nurture our children in Safe Communities of Love in a World of Peace and Prosperity!

Breathe and Exhale Deeply.  Say Together...

"I am willing to take responsibility for the well-being of Our Earth and Our World by using my gifts to help others so that we can All actively work, prosper, and live together in Unity through Love."

Breathe Deeply and Feel the Commitment and Hope for Compassion, Collective Cooperation and and Responsibility with Peace in Every Heart Across Every Galaxy and Uni-Verse.

For Our Ancestors, Our Elders, Our Families and Every Child We Know and Those Yet to Be Born--- May We All Work Together and Learn to Become Good Responsible Stewards of  Love and Prosperity To Share!

Ubuntu!  I AM Because You Are! 
Umoja! Unity! Kujichagulia!  Self-Determination!
 Ujima! Collective Work and Responsibility!

Always, Melony

Please Re-Member...Peace is Possible through Compassion, Forgiveness, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Respect, Understanding and--- The Grace of Love!

About Kwanzaa...
Kwanzaa is an unique celebration founded in 1966 that takes place December 26th through January 1st every year.  It encourages people around the World of African descent to restore a Universal Family Tradition and to strengthen bonds within the family and community.
Dr. Maulana Karenga is the founder of Kwanzaa.  Through seven principles represented by the candles lit on the Kinara each day  during the celebration of Kwanzaa, we honor Our heritage as people of African descent who lost a great deal of our heritage through enslavement.
