Words that are just to close to home…. How many a time have I felt alone yet I look around and there’s streets full of people walking by, an address book full of contacts, a house full of family yet how far apart we all are how alone in this crowded world, all attached to our iPhones, iPads or laptops speaking to an almost artificial world just as I am now as I type these words.
I’m writing these words knowing that people from all over the world are going to read them. People of all ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, of different religious beliefs. Most of them, I’ll never get a chance to meet. Most of them, I don’t know how they look like, what’s the thing they want most in this world, or what is it that they’re afraid of… most of them are perfect strangers to me.
Yet, simply by writing these words with these strangers in my mind, having the certainty that my words will reach them, they become a little bit more than strangers. They become human beings, just like myself, and that is one of life’s greatest achievements.
