We’re having a community meeting tonight at 7pm.
Thus, at 9am this morning, we made rounds around the community to tell everyone. It was like sending one hundred telegrams to all your friends. By your own hand.
Email, texting, Facebook, FaceTime: it’s amazing how much we can communicate worldwide with our friends and family. We wish them happy birthday, see photos of growing kids, discuss daily goings-on, and laugh at the same YouTube video. And yet, I must visit my neighbors one by one to invite them to my house tonight.
