Today is the first day of Kwanzaa!! I am so happy to have made it through Christmas holiday. Although i do not celebrate Kwanzaa it is very close to my heart and family. By this time next year i plan on sharing this holiday with my husband and our African family.
In celebrating the principle UMOJA i learned alot from my trip to Ghana. The families there work very hard to keep their familues together. Strong, spiritual, humble and loving. It was very peaceful and i never felt out of place with anyone.
The marketplace was wonderful, like a big flea market.Everyone trying to sell their goods, from clothing, jewelry, foods, and about everything you could think of. Lots of smiles and collective hospitality.
In reference to the beloved Nelson Mandela, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." It has been a mighty long road and our people are strong, intelligient, and will continue to move forward as a proud nation.
