All of you are my neighbor, and I am your neighbor. An odd concept, but has been around for thousands of years. We may not be in the same town, or even country, but what happens to each one of us, matters to the other. But to engage with each other in a healthy manner, we need to see each other, we need to look beyond the superficial and realize our unity as a human.
I guarantee we don't agree on a whole host of topics and issues, but our views should matter to each other. The ability to discuss our differences is what brings us together - that discussion does not divide, it unites.
During your next cup of coffee, consider what neighbors you need to be aware of today. If might just be the person next door or at the next table.
