If you ever doubt how connected we are as people, just consider the Ebola virus. Kathy L. Gilbert relays how Ebola not only takes lives, it harms communities.
“I think there are going to be a lot of long-term devastating consequences to this even when the medical aspect comes under control,” he said. “For every case there is a family, a community, church members … all of whom are going to experience deep needs.”
Indeed, there is no us vs. them. We’re all connected…we’re all responsible.
How does this consideration change the way you go about your day?
