Connectivity 3

We are all interconnected:

  • Humans

  • Animals

  • Land

  • Sea

Dependent upon one another for something…for everything.

  • Food

  • Oil

  • Work

  • Workers


Whether we like each other or not.
Whether we want to be or not.


I am your sister-brother no matter your mother.

Turn on the news.
Look around.

Even in our disunity we are one.


All of us together.

    You are SO right! Although we may be different but, in the scheme of things, we are all the same. Whether you are the victim of a drive-by shooting, or you’re hit by a bus while you’re waiting on a train, we die the same death. So live well! Peace, lj

    Hello Candelaria!
    Your words are very simple but very well explained.
    They reminded me of a video I saw the other day called “We are all connected”.
    Here is the link:

    Yes we are all in this together. We may feel like strangers but we are all in this together.
