HAPPY KWANZAA, everyone!
Day 1, December 26 – UMOJA (unity)
To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.
This adinkra symbol, Bi Nka Bi, is translated in Ghanian as “Bite not each other.”
May I become more aware each day of the Oneness of the universe. May I be less selfish and more serving of the Greater Good, of which I am a small, but important part, along with every other Living Thing.
(Affirmations courtesy of the book Practicing Kwanzaa Year Round, by Gwynelle Dismukes)
