In this world of more than 7 billion people, it’s really easy to see the rest of humanity as an anonymous group, while you live your own life. Everyone out there, however, has their own story. Their life is filled with just as much color and brightness and darkness as yours. They may have different problems, but their bag of rocks is exactly the same as yours. Why is it, then, with our technology that allows us to shrink the world down to the size of a screen, that society appears to be more selfish and lonely than ever before?
On this beautiful Saturday morning, maybe we should try to remember to smile and wave at the person across the street. Say hello to your neighbor. It’s time for a sense of community to come back to us as humans.
