“We are discovering that it takes a village to do more than raise a child; it is the key to a satisfying life. It turns out we need our neighbors and a community to produce jobs, be healthy, protect the land, and care for the elderly and those on the margin.
Each neighborhood has people with the gifts and talents needed to provide for our prosperity and peace of mind. We ALL have gifts to offer, even the most seemingly marginal among us.”
