William Bennett wrote an article for the New York Times, entitled “Stronger Families, Stronger Societies”. In it, he discusses that the way to make society function properly is to make the family unit stronger. It is the base unit of any community and is what society revolves around. As a result, we find that when society begins to suffer, we see that the family is suffering even more. The two are directly linked. People talk politically about making the world a better place to live but are they recognizing the need to make life better for the family? As we observe the digression, we can only wonder what more can be done. I think that it needs to start in our very own family. As parents, and future parents, we have the power to make a difference in this world by making a difference in our homes. Take the time to teach your family about how important they are, ways that they can be successful, and how to pass that on to future generations. If we each took the time to take care of our own family, don’t you think the world would be a better place? Imagine it! Everyone is happier, people are kinder, marriages are stronger and families are better. All of these results just because we love and take care of our own family.
