“Our society is so fragmented, our family lives so sundered by physical and emotional distance, our friendships so sporadic, our intimacies so ‘in-between’ things and often so utilitarian, that there are few places where we can feel truly safe.”
It is impossible to guarantee safety in any space.
But here’s is an idea.
What if we gathered for a few more meals together? What if we go bowling once in a while with a group of friends? What if, instead of turning on the boob tube after dinner, we take a walk – preferably with another human or maybe a pet? What if we reach out a bit more, and wait for others to reach out to us a bit less? Just a few thoughts….but I urge us to move from thinking to DOING!
