The Methods, Myths and Miracles of Talking to Strangers

We need the emotional input of other humans as much as we do the air we breathe and the food we eat. Deprive us of it and we will wither and die just as surely as if we were deprived of food and fresh air. 

But, when strangers come together, joy and knowledge can be shared, love and hope can be found, food can be grown, diseases can be cured and miracles can happen – every day, every hour, every minute: because the biggest miracle of all is you.
