Kujichagulia: Self Determination

I think you suffer under the impression that no one understands or celebrates Kwanzaa. Oh to the contrary. You've seen it celebrated each morning on your way to work, fellow riders are determined to get that seat on the train, get out of the way, you are blocking an important principal. You have a good idea and a co-worker steps up and claims credit, be quiet, the boss needs to see their brown noses. Coffee shops are prime examples of Kujichagulia at work. The next time a determined customer jumps in front of you and screams "I WOULD LIKE A MOCHA, SMOCHA, LATTEE SKIM WITH SPLEDA..........", don't get mad. Look at them directly in the eye, don't blink and scream at the top of your lungs "KUJICHAGULIA!!!!!!!!!", now how would you like your coffee.
