Would you call 911 on another parent? - The Washington Post

A great article on what VILLAGE should have meant to us.  We have lost the sense of community and mutual responsibility for the safety of everyone around us.  Now we can delegate responsibility to courts, lawyers, and cops, while we cast judgement.  We don't step up and offer a helping hand.  But we sure are quick to throw the first stone. Think that statement's too harsh?  Remember that when you call the cops you are choosing to bring a gun in to settle whatever issue is at hand.

"Be the block mother, not the cop caller. That’s the path to neighborhoods that feel safe enough for everyone’s kids to roam."
