It has been more of a Community Celebration than a Private Family Celebration for the majority of people that our family has known in these modern times. A time of reflection & respecting our elders & enjoying our neighbors, community members, friends, blood family our wider circle of unrelated but we consider them to be family.
The intent of the celebration is to encourage & instill positive values from the elders to the younger generations as well as foster a sense of belonging in the community. Many community celebrations have a marketplace area to not only buy items but additionally connect people with community services that they may have been unaware of.
Have you been to a Community Kwanzaa Celebration in your area?
The video below explains some of the history of Kwanzaa

Have the RTCs dedicated themselves towards actually doing some things differently?
Maybe even starting with the leadership of those RTCs; is there stagnation or a general malaise due to needing to update the local party with new ideas?
Have the campaigns started working TOGETHER instead of only working with "the sure winner" as an attempt to grow the party in CT like is being done in other parts of the country?
Below is what I originally wrote in 2016... are things improving as we look ahead to next week and next year?
It is true there are too many UnContested Races in CT's General Assembly this year & in years past & if things do not change this will be the future as well...
The July 21st article in the Hartford Courant http://www.courant.com/opinion/op-ed/hc-ed-too-many-ct-seats-uncontested-0721-20160720-story.html
points out that "due to apathy" & "lack of leadership" seats are going uncontested during a year when there should be not only full ballots but also high voter turnout since it is a presidential election year
Copied & pasted from the article
"What a shame, then, that more than 25 percent of the House seats will go unchallenged by a major-party candidate, along with four seats in the Senate."
& also this from the article
" 16 Democrats will run unopposed by a Republican, nearly all of them incumbents, according to preliminary information from the secretary of the state's office. "
Shame on the local party leadership for not running full tickets;
but also shame on the cities & towns people that have not stepped up to run for office.
"We the People" means that each citizen has a responsibility to take some small part in running the country;
That means not just showing up once every couple of years to vote a party line without knowing what the issues are but attending town & even state level meetings at the town halls & state capitol.
What are You going to do to change the "defeatist" attitude that is running rampant in our state?
What are You going to do to help #FlipTheGeneralAssembly ?

Be Safe while you go out to Trick or Treat
& have your Halloween Fun -
Wear light colors & bring flashlights so you can see & be seen
Walk on the sidewalks not in the streets
Try to go out in groups together
Never Go Inside the House of a stranger
Wait to eat the treats until you get home & are able to check the wrappers for tampering in the full light - sadly there are people out there who have tampered with the candy in years past

we've heard about the "Mark of the Beast" regardless of our being Christian or not
It's become part of the world conversation that for those who don't read the bible have relegated to sci-fy movies...
The chip is no longer a sci-fy idea but is actively being used in other parts of the world and now starting to be promoted here in the USA by some companies for their employees and even one offering it to their customers as well.
This is a documentary that was created over in the UK a couple of years ago;
With a local company making the news a few months ago talking on the news how they're having their employees chipped and offering it to their customers I was wondering what others thoughts were about the "Chip" and it's relationship to the "Mark of the Beast"...

As we are now approaching the municipal election cycles where our town council members and board of education members will be elected it might be a good time for you to start asking the canddates where they stand and what do they know about Common Core and what is going to be taught to our children in our public schools.
Do you know what is being taught to your children or do you mistakenly think that our public schools are teaching our children to read, write and critically think like they used to do many many years ago?
Our taxes keep being raised yet for all of the money that is being spent what is happening in our schools?
Are our children being better educated or are we just wasting our money on highly paid administrators who in turn waste money on highly over priced items that do not actually help our students?

Antonia Okafor talks about being a Black, Millennial, Female who is CONSERVATIVE.
Her story is repeated across the country for minority men and women as more people question what they have been told over the years vs what they can see with their own eyes.
Have you started to question what you're being told?
Have you lost friends or fear losing friends if you speak about having conservative values?

1967 Race Riots in Detroit killing 43 people & in NJ killed 2 dozen not a pleasant part of our history but it was a part of our history... we should learn from our past so that we can celebrate how far we have come & work to change things so that we do not repeat the bad results
1885 Ulysses Grant former president & Union General passed away - he was an interesting character not the greatest of presidents but not the worst either.
Without the Civil War or the rough times of the civil rights movement we'd not be able to celebrate the accomplishments that we do now have in our modern time. Is it perfect utopia for us? No but it is far better than it was in the past. We do have options today that earlier in my lifetime we did not have.

With all of the talk in the news about the "Russians" being at fault for Hillary losing the race last year;
I honestly wonder if more of the blame could be placed upon this movie by Dinesh D'Souza? "Hillary's America" was released in the theaters in the early summer with the dvd in the retail stores like WalMart & Target in late September or early October.
Were documentaries like that and "Clinton Cash" released for free on the internet more directly responsible for the 2016 losses of the democrats?
Did you see the movie "Hillary's America"?
Did you share the movie or "Clinton Cash" with friends and family when the movies and dvds came out?

Henson Ong is a Legal Immigrant to America who has become an American citizen. Henson Ong testified at the Jan 28th 2013 Legislative Office Building in Hartford CT.
At the public hearing he explains the history of guns and the Constitutional Right to Bear Arms.
Henson reminded us of historical events here and abroad and with lawsuit references reminds us that gun ownership has been upheld by numerous court rulings.
Gun ownership is both a right that is written as a reminder to the government in both the US & CT constitutions that the people have the right to defend themselves and their states but that right to self defense is an inalienable right...

To many of our school children in our modern day with the proper history of American and world history no longer being taught, the reason for the holiday is being forgotten.
There are too many children no longer having actual knowledge of what wars of our recent past have been like. With the older generations dying off with stories no longer being told about what it was like during those times.
As the "community memory" of our elders die off the reason we celebrate Memorial Day is becoming lost to only being the reason that the family gathers and has a BBQ after going out shopping the sales...

This makes us the last state in the country to finally have worked enough to pay for the amount of state and federal income taxes that we are supposed to owe....
The way that it looks with the continual news of the mismanagement of the previous funds that were stolen out of our families mouths this date will be pushed back even further back next year...
Each new report puts us further in the hole because there is no sense up at the capitol that spending must be cut so that our families are not hurt further...
If you are tired of these elected officials continuously stealing from our families then come on down to the capitol on May 21st 2017 & Tell them to STOP!!!

Did you Vote Today?
The general answer that I was given is "we'll have to look at that as a possibility" and a vote on that may come out on that this week on Wednesday night's meeting. The town charter only states that a budget vote has to happen prior to June 30th so there is enough time to be able to hold off on the first vote until after the session ends.
