Liberation Kamali Family,
Our Morning Meeting is the foundation of our day. We continue to use it at Abibifahodie Adesuabea (the school I’m apart of in Accra, Ghana).
It sets the mood and focuses our minds.
Check it out below and feel free to use it.
We are an Afrikan people
We will remember the humanity, glory and suffering of our ancestors
We will honor the struggles of our elders.
We will strive to bring new values and new life to our people.
We will have peace and harmony among us.
We will be loving, sharing and creative.
We will work, study and listen so we may learn, learn so we may teach
We will cultivate self-reliance.
We will struggle to resurrect and unify our homeland.
We will have discipline, patience, devotion and courage.
We will live as models to provide new directions for our people.
We will be free and self-determining
We are an Afrikan people,
We will win, and we have won
We will win, and we have won
We will win, and we have won!
Who are you?
I am the seed of my Ancestors. I am the hope of today. I am the builder for those unborn. I am the promoter of our Afrikan Way.
What is your purpose?
To use my personal skills and talents for the benefit of my community. To think of others first and build Umoja—Afrikan unity.
Where are you from?
Mama Afrika is my home. Liberation is my song. You can’t steer me wrong. I’m Afrikan to the bone.
Birth is not the beginning and death is not the end. I am because we are. Together we shall win.
