Altruism

Here’s a timely article from the Guardian, in the season of giving.

It tells us, “…people often underestimate the willingness of strangers to engage with, or even befriend them. Then I came across a study that suggested news coverage of current affairs tends to be more negative than positive because humans tend to give negative stimuli more attention.”

You know, “if it bleeds, it leads.” You’ve seen it.

When our Village is going, we’ll see plenty of strangers meeting and engaging with each other, and maybe down the track they won’t be strangers any more but a community of neighbors helping neighbors, just as intended.

Happy New Year!
