The World is a Neighborhood

This truth (that the world is a neighborhood) as expressed by Martin Luther King Jr.:

“We have inherited a large house, a great “world house” in which we have to live together – black and white, Easterner and Westerner, Gentile and Jew, Catholic and Protestant, Moslem and Hindu – a family unduly separated in ideas, culture, and interest, who, because we can never again live apart, must learn to live with each other in peace.” 

– Martin Luther King, Jr., Where Do We Go from Here:  Chaos or Community? (Beacon Press, 1981), p. 11.
