For many people community is a sense of cohesiveness. For generations, an individual’s community served a vital role in terms of offering camaraderie and acting as a support system.
With our society today moving at a faster and more detached manner due to technology, busy schedules and the frequency at which we change jobs, homes and locations, it makes it harder to feel any sense of community. It is too easy to become isolated in our homes and yet isolation tends to beget a sense of loneliness and depression not to mention the breakdown that can occur in communities due to a detachment from others.
The idea of community may simply come down to supporting and interacting positively with others individuals who share a vested interest. Weather your interest is in the well-being of your neighborhood or extends to the well-being of your global community you may want to consider getting more involved!
A strong community benefits the individual, the community as well as the greater society. People of all ages who feel a sense of belonging tend to lead happier and healthier lives!
If there is light in the soul,
There will be beauty in the person.

There will be harmony in the house.
If there is harmony in the house,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world.
