Everywhere…people passing by other people without a word or an ounce of care.
People refusing to look each other in the eye or say hello with a genuine smile.
Daily strangers… side by side… filling transit cars; going the same places without seeing each other. We’re together, in separate worlds; texting, phoning, zoning ….ignoring face to face connections.

We’re wading through life without even looking at each other. How can we Love if we never open our eyes?
Look around, and meet your brother…..
