New Years Resolutions

1.No Viewing violent/murder films/video ever again in in my life.

Because I did not realize how stupid it is to view horror as entertainment.
Because Neither I nor Anyone else wants to be murdered or assaulted,
we also don’t want to experience or die because of a accident, and we also reject death by illness as well.

2.try to apply (Nguzo Saba) 24/7-365 (all year) to my life
seven core principles (Nguzo Saba):

Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.

Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.

Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers’ and sisters’ problems our problems, and to solve them together.

Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.

Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

Kuumba (Creativity): To 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.

Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in God, our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

There might be more but this looks like enough.

Its strange how I personally met Maulana Karenga some years back in los angeles ,I was introduced to him by a Compton librarian I became friends with for a while.

At the time from my present recollection I was not yet ready nor did I appreciative the immense honor it was to meet a person of such experience and accomplishment.

I will Comment more on (Nguzo Saba) in future posts.

  1. Greetings: I too am Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race. It is a hard issue though. I was excited to come across your blog, and would like to know if we could interact and follow each share posts with each other. Thank you for you kindness. Deborah

  2. Greetings Deborah,the interaction you request is automated and in progress.
    I will strive to integrate Nguzo Saba into every aspect of my life for my vision now is that it is the only reasonable option and a definite win-win.
