Nia (nee–YAH) Purpose

Happy 5th day of Kwanzaa
 
Today's Principle is Nia (nee–YAH) Purpose: To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
 
What is your Nia
 
My Nia is: A Message from Dr. Maya Angelou
 
"A Pledge to Save Our Youth" Young women, young men of color, we add our voices to the voices of your ancestors who speak to you over ancient seas and across impossible mountain tops. Come up from the gloom of national neglect, you have already been paid for. Come out of the shadow of irrational prejudice, you owe no racial debt to history. The blood of our bodies and the prayers of our souls have bought you a future free from shame and bright beyond the telling of it. We pledge ourselves and our resources to seek for you clean and well-furnished schools, safe and non-threatening streets, employment which makes use of your talents, but does not degrade your dignity. You are the best we have.You are all we have.You are what we have become. We pledge you our whole hearts from this day forward.- Dr. Maya Angelou
