Kwanzaa: Umoja: Unity:

Umoja- Unity

When I think of unity I think of “wholeness” this year I’ve been made whole in many areas of my life. I’m not as sick as I have been, no longer homeless and no longer alone. Unity was a choice I had to make; a goal I set and one I conquered. I’m grateful! Is all I can say. There’s something and someone bigger than me and kept me company. I cried much, but my tears never fell on empty grounds.

I am whole

I think about all the trials and tribulations we as African Americans have overcome and still face, while death is outside our door, we still sing “we shall overcome” I have never been as proud as I have as an African American until we came together, made our voices heard, and are still demanding justice and equality.

We are whole

United we stand Divided we shall fall. God is with us. Our ancestors march within us from the heavens, opening doors, and blasting with trumpets. We are not alone. History can’t forget our marks that we are leaving on this earth. And the future will not ignore us.

We are ONE!

Joyous Kwanzaa, everyone.




Quote and question

Someone asked me to quote my favorite scripture and how it pertains to me:

Romans 15:20

“I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on someone else’s foundation”

This has to be my favorite bible scriptures ever. I love the book of Romans within it’s self.

My version of the gospel is raising awareness, speaking truth for those whom voices are not heard and making changes and rewriting policy.

I want to do something different not anything that has been done. I want to help children parents and families speak for themselves; I don’t know how but it will come in time. I believe it will come. I will help change the world not just Connecticut. Not just the United States but the world.

Spreading the gospel and hopefully I will be able to answer the question about the meaning of my being….
