Editor's note: This is the second of a three-part series on Community: what it is, what it means and what it can be. Click to view Part 1: Community Starts with Finding Common Ground.
Have you ever considered humanity’s greatest gift? Beyond our ability to harness fire, electricity or flight, beyond the creation of the wheel or sliced bread or the world-wide web, the power to communicate is our greatest ability.
It’s taken for granted, but we have the amazing capacity to take a thought/idea/concept existing solely within one individual’s mind, transmit that thought/idea/concept (through a variety of means) and share it with other individual minds. All through simple conversation, communication.
Communication is at the heart of Community.
