 On the Home Front
The hearts of Catholic home schoolers must be firmly set on two aims — one personal and one apostolic.
For our children, the personal goal of our home schooling is a radical one — to teach and live the truths of our faith with our children, in such a way that they will serve our Creator well on earth and enjoy an eternity of happiness with him.
But blessed by an abundance of time together, the home schooling family is capable of creating an intensive community of life and love — not because we start out as more virtuous human beings, but because we have more time and focus to deal with the realities of sin and weakness.

 Home front - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Home front is the informal term commonly used to describe the civilian populace of the nation at war as an active support system of its military.
In the political jargon of militarists or nationalists, it implies the imperative of effective militarisation of a society, and a claimed necessity for social servitude to the needs of a military command, during a time of war.
With the rapid increase of military technology, the term "military effort" has changed to include the "home front" as a reflection of both a civilian "sector" capacity to produce arms, as well as the structural or policy changes which deal with its vulnerability to direct attack.

The centrality of the home front and the influence of its staying power on the national decision-making process requires a real process of reaching conclusions, one not based on well-known (and justified) arguments about the state's neglect of these issues in recent years.
This process must include government ministries, the home front command, local leaders and representatives of social organizations, who have undertaken a great role in providing aid.
At the end of the process, the home front command, ministry of welfare, local governments and aid organizations must come away with clear, effective plans to provide service to the home front, and to continue providing services to the weak sectors of society during times of emergency.
