Kwanzaa's fourth principle is Ujamaa, which emphasizes the importance of cooperative economics. It encourages us to work together to establish and sustain our own businesses, stores, and shops and to share the profits equitably. This principle is a cornerstone of our community's efforts to promote economic empowerment and self-sufficiency. On this fourth day, I want to reflect on one of my childhood memories that express the adage of my people: “ngwụzo ọrụ so n'ọrụ..” those accompanying the labourers are part of the labourers. 

On the second day of Kwanzaa, we celebrate the principle of Ujima, which means "Collective Work and Responsibility" in Swahili. This principle emphasizes the importance of working together as a community and taking shared responsibility for the well-being of each other. The principle of Ujima is based on the idea that we are all connected, and by working together, we can build and maintain a stronger and healthier community. It encourages us to collaborate and solve common problems in a way that benefits everyone.

Ziad K. Abdrlnour's saying is a great conversation starter for exploring the Second Kwanzaa principle, Kujichagulia. Ziad says, “For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.” However, when it comes to Kwanzaa, it's not about whether an explanation is possible, but rather about the need for one. This is even interesting on this second day of Kwanzaa when we celebrate the self-determination of black people. For those who haven't experienced Kwanzaa, it's a beautiful annual celebration from December 26th to January 1st. During this time, black families, communities, and allies, mainly in the Americas, reflect on their rich past, present, and future histories and celebrate the vibrant and diverse Pan-African cultural and spiritual heritages. This week-long celebration is a chance to celebrate the dynamic and diverse Pan-African cultural and spiritual heritages and to rediscover their roots.

Au début, ce n’était pas du tout facile. Pourtant, grâce à mes expériences antérieures, je suis devenu très familier avec certains de leurs concepts spirituels.

Today's Gospel presents a revolutionary Mary who defied the odds of her religious tradition and emerged victorious. How can this come about since I am a virgin? If Mary lived in the present-day religious setup, she would have been condemned by all the bishops' conferences and Christian religious traditions. We don't see this point clearly today because, for some reason, Christian tradition has transformed Mary's FIAT into a mere wish, disempowering women in the Christian tradition. However, it was not always like this. clothing.
