It Takes a Community to Raise a Child

But what happens when that Community is unhealthy and broken? Are we teaching or showing them the best values and tools to carry them through life successfully?


As Elders and parents, we need to be role models because the younger people are watching.


Are we compassionate and non-judgemental when we make decisions? Are we voicing our opinions in a respectful manner and are we listening with the same respect? Are we supportive and empathetic toward eachother?


Can we work together to promote honesty, integrity, accountability and transparency?


There is a need for kindness.


There is a need to make out community healthy and productive for each and every one of us, to the best of our ability, but we need to do it “TOGETHER”
