“Basically, it is the connections with people that give life its value” says Wilhelm von Humboldt. In solidarity with each other, we develop our strengths, grow beyond ourselves, learn and feel true joy.
Pure physical distance cannot cut this connection to each other. Those who think about each other, make virtual contact with each other, telephone or write letters, remain very connected.
Or as Ernst Ferstl said: As long as humanity connects us, it doesn’t matter what separates us.
