The family is “the primary social group and the wellspring of all civic and national life.” It is the basis of society. It conditions the moral health and tone of a nation, of an age. If the home is corrupted, the nation is on the way to destruction. To raise the moral standards of a nation we must begin, with the home. The future of a nation is conditioned by the homes that it fosters. The success or failure of a nation lies in the home.
