Kwanzaa 2012: Day 5–NIA

HAPPY KWANZAA, everyone!

Day 5, December 30 – NIA (purpose)
To collectively build and develop our community, to restore our people’s traditional greatness, and to do what makes us glad to be who we are.


This adinkra symbol, Sankofa, is translated in Ghanian as “But it is never too late to go back and fetch what is lost.”

May I have an increased understanding of my purpose in life, and may all my energies be constantly directed to that end. May I take full advantage of every opportunity to develop my human potential for love, service and fulfillment.

(Affirmations courtesy of the book Practicing Kwanzaa Year Round, by Gwynelle Dismukes)
