This week’s reflection is very simple.  I was looking at the seven principles of Kwanzaa and and it struck a cord with me. Thinking about how we view and approach our lives during and after our year or more of service.The principles seem to fit what being a Y.A.V. means. Umoja-Unity, Kujichagulia-Self-Determination, Ujima-Collective Work and Responsibility, Ujamaa-Cooperative Economics, Nia-Purpose, Kuumba-Creativity, and Imani-Faith. Be blessed.
