About our cover THINKING IT THROUGH

The love that builds and rebuilds neighborhoods

The thing about good neighborhoods—and there are some—is that they give people a feeling of belonging. People like being known individually. They like to be cared about, supported, valued. They like to feel that, in a certain sense, they are part of a larger family than their own home unit.

When this feeling of neighbor and neighborhood is missing, whether it's in an area of several blocks or society as a whole, the sense of community needs to be rebuilt. In fact, most of the problems of society simply can't be solved without a rediscovery of what it means to be neighbors.
