Why a Village?
I chose the name "It Takes A Village" because I am a huge believer that we need one another for survival. Without my "village" (family, friends, co-workers, neighbors) I would have never been able to survive the loss of my marriage and single-motherhood. I lean on those in my village on a daily basis, both physically and emotionally. Many times people (women especially) think that in order to show our strength we must go it alone. That simply isn't true. We all need people in our lives to share the joys and pains that we encounter. Afterall, what fun is life if we have no one to share it with?
