Third principle of Kwanzaa

 


Happy third day of Kwanzaa - Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility)

Excerpts from https://www.officialkwanzaawebsite.org 

Nguzo Saba offers us an African value system that provides morally grounded guidance for our lives and living. They serve as a mirror and measure of our living up to our highest and most beneficial values.

The Third Principle, Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility) speaks to the ethical obligation and transformative practice of building together the good world we all want and deserve to live in and leave as a rightful legacy for future generations. It teaches us to recognize and respect the common good in and of the world, to cultivate and harvest it together and practice an ethics of sharing this and other goods of the world.

 This series is being published as support of the Black Lives Matter movement. African Americans may or may not celebrate this holiday, which was devised in their honor. I find it a most inspiring series of thoughtful principles - one for each of seven days.

  1. ...Collective Work and Responsibility has seemed to have fallen out of favore in the this country.
