  • It's easy to forget in the midst of our seemingly intractable divides, but human beings need each other.
  • We are social creatures, of course, but our need for human connection goes beyond family bonds and friendship and social stimulation.
  • In times of distress especially, the simple, purposeful presence of another person can be powerfully transformative'both emotionally and physiologically.

  • Kuja wrote: "Two days ago I was out surfing and a young guy, maybe 20 or so, was just inside of me by 10 yards or so.
