In the mid60s, Dr. Maulana Karenga created Kwanzaa, an observance that honors African heritage in AfricanAmerican and PanAfrican cultures. From Dec. 26 to Jan. 1, these days are dedicated to the seven principles Nguzo Saba focusing on African philosophy that encompasses the mutual and interactive relationship with family, community, environment and the world. For more information on Kwanzaa, the principles and symbols, visit the official Kwanzaa website. Join us in celebrating Kwanzaa and enriching our lives with its beauty and truths.
One of the seven principles of Kwanzaa is Umoja, which calls for promoting unity in our families and communities. We can accomplish this by spending quality time together, striving to overcome our differences and celebrating the ties that bind us. Our country is a melting pot of cultures, ethnicities and religions, yet we all share the common experience of belonging to one family the human race.
As we celebrate this holiday season with loved ones, our hearts and minds are with the victims and families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Such devastating tragedies reinforce the need for us to unite as a people to bring peace and healing to our communities and our nation. As a Swahili proverb rightly states, Unity is strength, division is weakness.
