Tonawanda News — What I’m getting at is this: We as Americans should never have gotten into this jam where we think grandparents need government.
Grandparents need their families and families need their grandparents.
And, America needs them all. Call me old-fashioned, but the family unit — founded on love and support — is the basic building block of our nation; strong and just families that are mature and respectable will create a country that is the very same. Too many broken and weak families create a country of similar ill temperament.
