Ethiopians will celebrate the dawning of a new millennium
CCEM | February 14th, 2007
In a few months, Ethiopians will celebrate the dawning of a new millennium. It is equally exciting and humbling to find oneself at this juncture of Ethiopian history.

It is exciting because we are part of the unique Ethiopian/human civilization since the time of Lucy/Dinqnesh and are coming up to close another millennium. It is also exciting to know that we are the only nation on earth with our own calendar and the welcoming of another millennium that is intimately ours. Yet again the coming of the new millennium is humbling. It is humbling because although so much has been accomplished in the millennium to pass, Ethiopians face daunting challenges from the onset in the millennium come.
Thus, recognizing that the coming New Year is distinct and needs to be accepted with confidence, a committee is organized in Washington D.C. to celebrate the Year 2000 E.C.
The Committee for the Celebration of the Ethiopian Millennium (CCEM) is comprised of active community members from diverse backgrounds throughout North America in order to lead a nation-wide celebration, reflection and resolution on the welcoming of the Ethiopian Year 2000.
