I've noticed something interesting since I gave away the "Love Thy Neighbor" badge recently. I didn't learn its new custodian's name, so I have started to think of the corner store where he works as the place where "my neighbor" works.
But so is the store on the other corner. So are the competing drugstores around the block.
The little badge has been gone for more than a week, but it's still reminding me: All of these stores are places where my neighbors work. All of the people who go by are my neighbors.
Thanks for reading, neighbors.
