The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do you sometimes feel that we are all mysteriously connected?
Some people maintain that in our virtual age, friendships created through social media are shallow and meaningless – and that there is less meaningful connection between people than ever before.
I don’t agree.
The most surprising thing about my journey as a blogger has been that I’ve made some wonderful friends online. Some of them I’ve met face-to-face as well. Yes, they’re real friends.
But beyond the realm of friendship, we are all interconnected. Our lives are inextricably intertwined.
Here is an inspiring video that illuminates our mysterious connection.
Composer Eric Whitacre led a virtual choir of singers from around the world. Listen to the uplifting sound of 2000 singers in the following video.
