Being “a good person” is not enough.

I will not forgo human connection for the sake of ambition, or misplaced sense of importance.

I vow to be kind to strangers.

I vow to be patient with co-workers.

I vow to be a better neighbor.

I vow to connect with people – in real life.

I will not give in to the baser instincts of despair and rage.

I can’t afford to.

Too many people are alone out there. Maybe we can find just one. Maybe we can help turn a tide.

I will share a meal with others at least once a week, to nourish body and spirit, to connect and share with them as if it was necessary to our survival.

It just might be.
