Friendly neighbours help build a community
Editor: In response to ‘A challenge to runners: try a little friendliness’ (The Times, Aug. 22)
In our current day world of multiculturalism, sometimes we forget that we are all people.
We live in the same neighborhoods, shop in the same stores, eat in the same restaurants, attend the same functions and our kids play together in the school yards.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we were just a little bit more friendly when we pass each other on the street?
Whether you are walking, running, biking or just standing there with your dog, remember to say, ‘hi’ or ‘hello, how are you today.’
Community only comes together if we all hold hands and share each other’s lives.
So perhaps it will brighten your day, or someone else’s, if you stop and share your kindness and smile.
