American homes used to always have a front porch. On that front porch, sheltered from the elements and sun, people would gather and discuss the farm markets, business, church and politics. Neighbors would great one another and it was part of the social fabric of the community.
Since WW2 and the advent of the suburb and the ranch style house the front porch has been missing. What a loss. We have turned inside to the television and air conditioning. Could this be the cause of the huge gaps in viewpoints in the US? Hard to tell.
What things have been lost that you think have made a big impact on society?
Go out on your front porch tonight, no matter how big or small, and sit there for a while. Think about what you have been missing as your neighbors walk by.
Take care and have a great Wednesday.
