In the past few days, I have heard lessons that should make us consider how we are caring for ourselves and others. None of this is new; it just seems remarkably significant right now.
A futurist said the fastest growing social neighborhood app is Nextdoor, now used in 1 of every 3 US households. Nextdoor is a digital neighborhood bulletin board, sharing handyman recommendations, the answer to “did anyone else hear gunshots?” and in whose alley to find homegrown squash for free pick-up.
An expert in diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) has suggested that “belonging” should now replace the physical must-haves such as food, water, and safety as the very base of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
Have our connections to each other become the new baseline for our safety and security?
