Celebrate Kwanzaa: Kuumba.

On this, the sixth day of Kwanzaa, we focus on kuumba (creativity) and "do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it."

I was always taught that we all have talents. Are you discovering, developing and using your talents? Here are some resources that may help you do so:

* Think creatively about the world's problems and how to solve them.

* Use your talents to serve your community, and we all benefit.

* Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.

* Be the person you want to be.

As humans, we are all members of that first African Diaspora. And accordingly, the principles of Kwanzaa apply to us all. Manifest the Kwanzaa principles today, this week, and all year long.

“What is beautiful is good, and who is good will soon be beautiful.” - Sappho

Dear Karama, Are you sure you know the history of Kwanzaa? If you are a believer in Jesus Christ you will denounce this antichrist ritual. Please read what others have to say about the origins of this celebration. You are honoring everything that goes against the one true God and making libations to ancestors. This is pagan.

Hello Anon,

Perhaps my post and comments on imani (faith) will shed light my thoughts regarding your comments.

Peace and blessings to you and yours. Please visit again soon, and spread the word.
