We Are Family

Acknowledging how close we all are, instead of clinging to what separates us, enables us to feel less alone in the world. Every person we meet, see, hear, or read about, is a member of our family. We are truly not alone. We also begin to see that we are perfectly capable of understanding and relating to people who, on the surface, may seem very different from us. This awareness prevents us from disconnecting from people on the other side of the tracks, and the other side of the world. We begin to understand that we must treat all people for what they are—family.

This thought is particularly profound to me, since we are spending Christmas with our Daughter, Son-in-Law, and our two Grandsons in Bandung, Indonesia. People seem so different, yet still the same, half way around the world from our home in Washington State USA!
