We don’t have to build walls to keep our children safe. We should instead band together and share our virtues, our strengths, our aspirations. It is a part of our basic instinct to belong to a community. We will share resources, ideas, strategies. We will provide means for children to explore their world, understand the links between themselves and their cultures and how identities are shaped, how the world is sustained. We will teach, we will learn, we will grow together. We are The Little Village.
