Across suburbia you will see neighbors that never speak to one another or know the people that live right next door to them. This disturbs me. I think the downfall of our economy and the difficulties in our social society are related to our lack of unity. In the photo above you see a block party on our circle; friends and family together sharing a night around the fire pit. We bring food and drink and share fun for an evening and we do this between 5 and 10 times every summer.
Why go to this trouble you ask? First of all – it is not trouble to spend time with people who you care for. Caring for them is easy once you really get to know them and their families – they become a part of your circle in life.
Meet your neighbors. Build relationships. Have block parties so you can laugh with them and grow a friendship. Make a difference in your world by connecting with others – it’s important!
