Tomorrow is the First day of Kwanzaa. So in a effort to be a little different, I would like to wish everyone a very happy Kwanzaa. Tomorrow will be a celebration of Umoja, or Unity. We live in a very turbulent time in history. Unfortunately in this post-racial America, we are still dividing ourselves on cultural, political, economical, and racial boundaries. We have a desperate need to unify on a common goal and dream. The American dream does not have to be a passing fantasy, or a lie we tell our children like that of Santa Claus. We can, and shall unified on the common goal of freedom and equal rights for all. Where everyone has the responsibility and opportunity to make the most of this life granted to us. So as we slide toward the new year America, remember the ideal of Umoja. Unity on a common ground.
