Community Quote – Rick McKinley

We are wired for community. Literally. Each of us has a belly button. Some are outies, some are innies, some are pierced. But we all carry this unmistakable sign that shows we were at one time physically connected to our mothers. Life begins for every human in utter dependence on another. But as we grow, our culture slowly sucks us into believing that we will truly be liberated only when we no longer need to depend upon someone else. Yet in our liberation we find oppression – we fight autonomy only to end up lonely, tired, and struggling.
