While reading, the founder of the Children's Defense Fund Marian Wright Edelman's, The Sea is So Wide and My Boat is So Small, she wrote about this Ytube video. She used this video to illustrate just how important the entire community is to a child's life. Had only the mother attempted to protect her calf, it wouldn't have survived. It took the entire community of water buffalo to save this calf. In a world where there are plenty of the lions and the alligators in the world preying on our children, what role do you play in protecting them? If we all surrounded our children with love and protection, how many children can we save?
It takes the ENTIRE community. We are ALL responsible for the children in our community--not just the parents and the teachers. What role are you playing in the children in your community's lives?
