Capturing the essence of life and presenting the joy, sorrow, and achievement in creative ways is what lifts us above the drudgery and pain that so often defines our lives.
Our purpose may not be carved in stone, but we can focus our words, our actions, and our habits into making a difference every day.
On this day of Kwanzaa, we pledge to develop our own businesses and to support them, to maintain shops, stores and industry that contribute to the well-being of our community.
Kujichagulia (koo-gee-cha-goo-LEE-ah) means self-determination
and is the second day of Kwanzaa.
