today Ujima. how many times do we say… that’s not my problem? this kwanzaa principal has being stating for decades what the #Occupy movement has been saying for only months… we are connected, and responsible for one another. not just fiscally, but emotionally and spiritually. There is a Zulu proverb that i learned while serving in City Year called “ubuntu” and it means “I am a person through other people… my humanity is tied to yours” –and with this link, we should not only have compassion for our brothers and sisters, but we should not be complacent with their pain or struggle. WE MUST work as a unit to make sure we are our best selves. For 2012… let’s make our Village a reality again. Be blessed on this 3rd day of Kwanzaa. ♥
