Community is everything.

Tight and social

Everyone cares for everyone else

No one goes unnoticed, is lonely, or lost.


Community is nothing.

Ships passing in the dark

Fearful or ambivalent or hatred of others

No one helping or noticing anyone else


Take courage, build your community

Nothing is achieved inside a comfort zone.

Do the right thing, because it is the right thing

Not because of rules or fines.


Don’t speed, do wear seatbelts

See others, really see them.

Think of others’ safety

Get vaccinated.


Joy will bloom inside

Being kind is the best salve

Community is everything

The payback is uncalculatable.
