Going home, for good

 While small-town life has its limitations, and having the neighbors know your business can be annoying, those same neighbors can become your community of strength and survival.

 Rod Dreher writes for The American Conservative and is part of a communitarian conservative tradition; his ability to “work from home” allowed him to leave Philadelphia and return to his hometown of St. Francisville, La.  A town full of saints.

New York Times columnist David Brooks tells the story of how the death of Dreher’s sister drew a community together and brought Dreher home – for good.
