‘Yearning for Solidarity’

Yearning for Solidarity

I am sensing a yearning for solidarity, a cry coming from people for togetherness and for love. For too long we’ve been walking on the road to independence. We’re beginning to feel our loneliness. We’re beginning to see that we can only live if we’re together. We have had enough of loneliness, independence and competition.
