We live in community. We live in neighborhoods, interacting in church, on the job, even at the supermarket. Some prefer to live in neighborhoods with closely adjoining neighbors while others prefer the wooded lot with fences that separate us from others. Regardless, we need each other and can choose to be friendly and caring with those around us. The poet John Donne said “No man is an island,” and surely this is true. Be sensitive to those around you, their needs, and how you can share effectively with each other.
