If all the people who are trying to get the nation right through politics were to go home and get their own family right, we’d make a lot more progress toward getting the nation right.
As the health of a tree proceeds from the health of its roots, so the health of a nation proceeds from the health of its families.
There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.
– Henry David Thoreau
Get the family right. Your family. And keep it right. If enough of us do this, the nation will take care of itself.
