MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT

PRESIDENT OF SALEM UNITED, INC. MESSAGE

As the New Year is upon us, let’s not begin with making those new year’s resolutions which we know we will not follow; instead, let’s make a plan to do the best work we can do throughout the year.

During the season of Kwanzaa which ends on New Year's Eve, our ceremony includes 7 principles:

PRINCIPLES
Umoja (Unity)
To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.

 

Kujichagulia (Self-Determination)
To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves

 

Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility)
To build and maintain our community together and make our brother's and sister's problems our problems and to solve them together.

 

Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics)
To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together.

 

Nia (Purpose)
To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

 

Kuumba (Creativity)
To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

 

Imani (Faith)
To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

 

I ask all of us to live these principles throughout the year.  Hold them fast and spend 2023 making this world, or at least our small part of the world, a better place for all of us.

 

We are great people who can accomplish so much in this world today, let’s remember that and don’t let anyone stop you from the greatness that you are and that you can be!

 

I wish you so much in prosperity and success in 2023 and I look forward to making Salem United, Inc. a part of everyone’s greatness whenever possible!

A person who does not know the history of the last 3,000 years wanders in the darkness of ignorance, unable to make sense of the reality around him .
