A Small American Village

I have been enjoying Duncan Crary’s new podcast endeavor - A Small American City. While each episode features entertaining insights into the intriguing and oftentimes quirky characters that populate Crary’s adoptive hometown of Troy, New York, the heartwarming look at the Kennedy family has been my favorite:

They say it takes a village to raise a child, or three. Here in town, just about everyone knows Annabella, age 10, and her twin sisters Scarlett & Evelyn Kennedy, age 6. And though they don’t have a playground, these little women do have lots of kooky adults to entertain them when they’re out and about.

This is a poignant portrait of what can and should be. Many people profess the belief that it takes a village to raise a child, but this endearing family has shown what it really means. As I was listening I couldn’t help but imagine, even long for, such a life for myself and my family.
