It takes a village to raise a child..... This old, familiar proverb has always resonated with me and it's part of why I am so grateful for my Facebook village of mommy's. But I think this wise saying has much more power than that. It takes a village to make an impact, to make a difference, to change our world for the better. To me, raising a child to do these things, with the help of "your village" is of course the whole point of this proverb, but lately I've been focusing more on the impact part.
