"No man is an island." - John Donne
This is how we started class today.......we have to remember, we are not alone. No matter what we are facing, what we are feeling, good or bad, happy or sad......some where some place else in the world there is someone struggling like we are.
We will all experience life, death, health, illness, joy, grief, youth and old age, love and hate, if we live long enough. We have to remind ourselves.......daily......we are not alone. There are others who have faced the same battles, who have won and lost just as we will.
If you really think about it, it is quite comforting.....to know that we are not an island, that somewhere tonight some one else is going through the same thing as we are.
