Day 2 of Kwanzaa consisted of me and the two boys having a quick candle lighting late in the night. We discussed who our ancestors are and who we want to be and what we want to do.
Joseph (6) wants to be a Police Officer, Jonathan (9) the candle lighter wants to be a Fireman or Park Ranger. Mom - wants to be a teacher with integrity vs. consultant, to teach my clients how to navigate the world of federal contracting vs. just telling someone what to do.
Kujichagulia (koo-jee-cha-goo-LEE-ah) - Self-Determination - deciding for ourselves who we want to be and what we want to do.
