Kwanzaa Day 2 "Self Determination"

Kujichagulia (koo-gee-cha-goo-LEE-ah) means self-determination and is the second day of Kwanzaa. On this day, we pledge to define ourselves, to NAME ourselves, to create for ourselves, and to speak for ourselves, instead of being defined, named by, created for and spoken for by others. On this day we design for ourselves a positive future and then vow to make that prophecy -- that DREAM -- a self-fulfilling one.

Love the Kwanzaa posts. I would have done something similar, but did not want to duplicate your blog content. I do put up the info at work each day. Thanks. It's great! Happy Kwanzaa.

Design for myself a positive future and make it come true. Nope. Can't see that far. Today breathing is about all I can accomplish. Sorry.
