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.

Bristols lost Roman mosaic goes back on display
The Orpheus mosaic shows him seated on a bench playing a kithara, a type of lyre. He wears a cap, a belted tunic, a cloak and high boots. A fox leaps up towards the kithara on his right, and seven animals run to or from each other around him. There are a lion, hind, bear, bull, leopard, stag and another feline possibly a panther. It is thought that the design was modified since the animals are arranged in pairs except for the bear. Perhaps it was reduced in size to fit a smaller room.
From Victorian times, the mosaic was mentioned occasionally. For a long time it was thought to have been lost.
In the early 1990s, Bristols art librarian Anthony Beeson, who was also archivist for the Association for the Study and Preservation of Roman Mosaics, led a small team which sorted the bits and reassembled the enormous jigsaw.
It took several years and in 2000, visitors to Bristol Museum and Art Gallery could watch the work as it progressed in the front hall. Anthony told Bristol Times: In being persistent I managed to rescue a piece of Roman art for the nation, which was very satisfying.
