A Prayer of Thanks for Sisterhoods

Our First Lady, Hillary Clinton, writes, “It takes a village to raise a child.” She is only echoing a time-honored tradition of Sisterhood throughout this country.

What we are creating, every day, with every activity, is that village.  We are are creating a village where  each child is cared for and looked after. We are creating a village where our aging parents and grandparents feel appreciated and useful, where their wisdom and energies are fully utilized.

We are creating a village where women can contribute, through acts of tzedakah, to help the sick, the stranger, the poor the abused.

We are creating a village where women can gather spiritual renewal and intellectual challenge to face the demands of their daily lives.

We are creating a village built upon a foundation of faith, spirit, moral principles and family values.

I am thankful to be a part of such a village.  Each of us should be proud to be a pillar in the village walls– the walls that surround, protect and enhance our lives and the lives of all those who are a part of the village in which we live.
