Mother’s Day: It Takes a Village

Few endeavors call for more creativity than the act of parenting. There’s no one definitive way to be a mother and so many ways to be a good one; bringing that unconditional love and compassion into the heart of our most meaningful relationships, our families, those relationships we have with our fellow travelers here at 2U. Yet such a love must come from somewhere, and so it can take a toll on us if we keep up the picket fences dividing up the broader human family. This Sunday, in the spirit of giving Mom a break, let us explore the nature of the nuclear family model of parenting and meet with the spirit of the Beloved Community; cultivating our creative capacities of Love both for others and ourselves.
