We Belong to Each Other - Doug McCusker

Conventional wisdom claims that we belong to our families, but we choose our friendships. What if we focus on our interdependencies rather than our degrees of separation? What if we expand our mental model of kinship to include the family of humankind? Join us as we explore what it means to belong to each other and how it relates to world peace.
