Get to Know Your Neighbors

As we become a more global and mobile nation, we are also becoming a more transient nation.  The classic notion of community which is changing.

Not long ago when one moved into a neighborhood, they were formally welcomed by an organization called the Welcome Wagon.  The Welcome Wagon would bring them gifts and make the new residents feel welcome. In that era, we knew our neighbors.  We often stayed and worked in the same town where we grew up. In today's fast-paced world, we often don't know our neighbors.

However, we are part of a society. Meeting one's neighbors helps reinforce this and helps us realize that we need each other and that we need to be there for each other. You don't have to become friends. Share phone numbers.
