I am reminded once again how close we are to each other…in fact, we are in removed from each other by only four degrees of separation.
How else do you explain meeting a man (a very nice man) who
a. Grew up in New Jersey with the man….
b. My niece, who grew up in Michigan, married this weekend in Bay Harbor
c. Who now teaches in the High School in Massachusetts my sister and brother went to?
We like to believe the world is this huge place…I have come to believe we are closer to each other than we think. Maybe, just maybe, we should first look for the commonalities to each other before we begin to address that with which we disagree.
