UJAMAA = SUPPORT EACH OTHER

Today is the fourth day of Kwanzaa! I hope you enjoyed discussing working together yesterday! It would also been a great day to work together doing a community service project. Today we go inward and support ourselves by making our thoughts for us and not against us. “My thoughts about Life are for me! My thoughts about God are for me! ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE! All of my thoughts are for me!”

Support yourself in your thoughts, then you can support each other. Support each other mentally by being the shoulder to cry on, being the moral compass by which to direct the life of our young people, or just giving a word of encouragement. Support each other financially! Put your money where your mouth is. We need to start owning hotels chains, textile companies, banks, super market chains, etc. Now one thing I need to say. . . Black businesses if you want the support of your brothers and sisters, try being more professional and having a bit more customer service. You have to support yourself first by cleaning up your place, training your employees, preparing and budgeting!!! Then you also have to be willing to show support to others! Give back to the community that supports you!
