Vitamin N is for Neighbor

“While the spirit of neighborliness was important on the frontier because neighbors were so few, it is even more important now because our neighbors are so many.” ~ Lady Bird Johnson

This was quite unexpected, I dare say. But as the former first lady expresses so well, today we have so many neighbors and we are not being neighborly. I won’t even begin to speak on the whole immigration issue. We must see others as we would wish to be seen ourselves – as other, not as object.

Just for today, be neighborly!
