Something I read recently-just really “rang home”-I hope you feel the same, after reading this-
“Mr. Rogers was right-we can all benefit from having and being Neighbors. A study by Harvard University found that about 1/3 of Americans no longer participate in social activities, such as inviting people in to their homes or visiting friends and relatives. Sociologists refer to this as a loss of “social capitol,” connections between people built on shared concern and trust. The loss of social capital increases feelings of isolation and decreases our civic engagement and our ability to face community challenges contructively.
The good news is that rebuilding social capital doesn’t have to be that hard. Take a batch of homemade cookies to a neighbor and say hello. Join a group or take a class. Volunteer in one of our programs, through another Community organization, or a school or hospital. Talk to the person next to you in line at the store. Walk through your neighborhood without your earbuds in and introduce yourself to the people you meet. Building social capital is a waste-free pastetime that is good for all of us.”
Giving back to our Neighborhoods, is so important. I hope this message inspires you to do, just that.
