Our Children!

Back in the day when a child is born all the neighbors and family was happy because they knew they were going to have a hand in this child’s upbringing. But now days parents, communities, neighbors, and families aren’t like that, they are selfish. Everyone is about self no one wants to help each other unless there is personal gain. But when shit gets thick everyone start looking for someone to be in their corner. But come on it really doesn’t work like that now do it. If you aren’t putting out there’s no way you’re getting back. Why should anyone be concern with your mess when you aren’t concern with theirs.
Here where I am and always have been! If I see your child first I’m going to acknowledge him or her so they will know I know of them and their family. Secondly, I am going to inquire their parents whereabouts and ask them how are they doing. Then school and what have they been up to lately. Is the rest of the family good. This is to make my presence known so they will know not only do they have a friend in the area but if I’m needed I’m close. This give most kids a sense of security and keeps them from wanting to do wrong. Especially if they are the type of kids being raised right, in a good loving home.
I just want anyone reading this to know I want you to be the same way with mine. Protect them if need be and watch mine as I would yours to allow no harm to come to mine. This is how a village raises kids and should raise kids even if they aren’t yours, they are someone’s baby, just like you are. Even as a grown woman I feel a sense of security in all neighborhoods because I know alot of people and they know me. Protect our children for they are our future and if we don’t who will; the criminals, rapists, murderers, molesters, drug dealers and so forth! Then where is our future?
