We are social animals.
Few of us can thrive without belonging in a community.
There are many kinds of community,
some will meet our needs better than others.
Perhaps the greatest need is to be the person we are meant to be,
and to find ourselves somewhere to belong
and be loved, and valued for our differences.

“A person belongs inasmuch as they are willing to cherish and be cherished by a place and its peoples.”
