Before Hillary Clinton wrote a book about it, it was an old African proverb.
We, as conservatives, have railed against the notion but…Should we?
”It takes a village to raise a child.”
As I think back to MY younger days…To a large extent, there WAS a “village” involved.
My friend’s parents were part of that “village” and so was my church. There were the teachers in my schools, older kids who were either good or bad role models, extended family and neighbors.
Primarily, there were my parents but, to be fair, others; many others were involved in some way, shape or form. A “village” of sorts, I suppose and anything you did, right or wrong, good or bad, was seen by SOMEBODY who knew my parents and had no qualms whatsoever in reporting it TOO them.
Maybe it just took a village to keep an eye out.
There IS another old adage…
“Somewhere, a village is missing its idiot.”
The good news is…We have located the missing village idiots.
The bad news is…
