In the Nata Village blog Family Planning Support Group, what matters is family because the village families get together on Mondays and discuss family issue. With Divorce on the rise it is important to try to prevent it from happening. More and more kids are having difficulties growing up because their parents are divorced and then they have a better chance of getting a divorce when they grow up. If every family could spend at least ten minutes a week talking to each other about their issue imagine how many families would have a stronger relationship. Do you think a support group like this would help families in need?

Cancer is killing more and more people each year, in Colorado. The Rocky Mountain News reports that in Colorado an extra 300 deaths are due to cancer. A report shows that Coloradoans in poverty smoke more, don’t get as much exercise, and are more obese. These conditions help the cancer form and increase. And also generally they have less health care. Across the world we are fighting cancer whether we have it or not, and with no cure it is deadly. So what are we going to do about it?

Ever heard the saying, “ Respect your elders.” Or, “ The older the wiser.” In the Nata Village blog, they are honoring those sayings by giving people in the village who are 60+ a day of events. The events included singing, dancing, speeches, and a big great lunch. What if every elderly person could spend one day teaching the rest of us lessons, our world would improve greatly. Most elderly people have lived through some of the most important history that has made what the world is today. Some have seen the Great Depression, and with our economy on the verge of going under, elderly people probably have some great ideas about what to do and what not to do, after all they lived through it. Do you think in our modern world we respect and listen to our elders enough?
