    Now that the election is over, may not all, having a common interest, re-unite in a common effort, to save our common country?
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    We do not raise our children alone.... Our children are also raised by every peer, institution, and family with which they come in contact. Yet parents today expect to be blamed for whatever results occur with their children, and they expect to do their parenting alone.
