"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!"
- Lilian G. Katz, Phd.
Every bone in my body hurts. We washed, taped, spackled and started to paint. It was a productive weekend. There is the expected "grass is greener" reaction from the boys regarding their respective rooms with keep out signs being made and fighting ensuing.
Things are going well, though. Only one room left for paint color decisions, and we consulted with a contractor regarding the major repairs.
