Daily Thoughts From Jean Vanier


The Need to Belong

We all need to belong; we need friends. Belonging is to be part of humanity. To make a conscious decision to be part of a group of people with a vision of truth and of justice and of love, and to struggle so that the gap between rich and poor becomes a bit less, you really need to be with others.
