The Power of Connection

Standard

Even I forget how powerful it can be to feel connected. Today was the homecoming parade in anticipation of tomorrow nights game. If I’m being totally honest I have to admit that in the six years I have lived here I have never made an effort to feel like part of the community. Often times I feel isolated and alone and part of the reason is most people who live here were born and raised here and well, there’s only so much room in a small town. But tonight, as the band played that familiar song and I recognized many faces riding on the floats throwing candy to the crowd, I felt a little tug at my heart and for a moment it felt really good. In this detached world of texting and social media, now more than ever, it is so important to feel part of something bigger than myself. When is the last time you felt really connected? Is it something that matters in your life or can you live without it?

    Since I am an educator, I typically feel connected to anyone that is in my class and especially when I am able to keep in touch and see the progress of former “students.”
