The African Proverb "It takves a Village to raise a child" is one commonly used, but not thoroughly understood. The "Village" is a complete system that not only benefits the children, but the adults involved. The Village reinforces values, mannerisms, and ideologies that are taught in the home.

Problem: Far too many of us openly and willingly support unsavory behavior and wonder why the condition of our communities are in such shambles. Intervention is replaced by gossip and slander.

Solution: STOP SANCTIONING ERY! We must hold one another accountable for our actions. There are certain cultures and organizations tha ostracize you for a period of time in an effort to deter what is considered to be undesirable behavior.
