I woke up this morning with the lyrics to a song running through my head. We heard the song last night at our school district's West Side Choir Concert. The 7th and 8th grade choirs from the two middle schools located on the west side of the school district performed as well as the concert choir from the high school that is located on the west side of the school district.
Before the concert started, Mr. D. and I talked about this week's events. We were at the choir concert because Fearless Maria volunteered to play percussion for one of the songs. Tonight, Benster is going to help out a Cub Scout pack with their Pinewood Derby.
Mr. D. and I enjoyed hearing all of the choirs. Even though Benster and Fearless Maria were not singing, we do know quite of few of the kids in the various choirs because some of them have been involved with the Girl Scout troop that I lead. Many of the kids attend or attended the middle school where I volunteer. Some of the kids have been in the religious education classes that Mr. D. taught. Some of the kids have been on sports teams that Mr. D. coached.
The concert ended with all of the choirs singing one song together.
It takes a whole village to raise our children
It takes a whole village to raise one child
We all, everyone, must share the burden
We all, everyone, must share the joy
It's a responsibility we take seriously in this neighborhood.
