Connections or Re-Connections

I will never cease to be amazed at how the internet can connect family and friends.

Take a split family for instance: A divide is caused somehow, there are no cooler heads to prevail at the time of the divide, so a silent seperation begins. People move, marry, divorce .... So much happens that the divide is forgotten but the seperation persists because the connection is lost through circumstance. Family members look for eachother unsuccessfully for years. The questions linger, and linger longer.

What happened? Where are they? What have they been doing all these years?

Then it happens, the connection re-establishes and the family can finally come together and re-establish the bond of family. The family now has the opportunity to do what it so needs to for healing .... communicate with eachother.

After 25 years, I am happy to say, I am one of those reconnected to both a friend and family member.

Two reconnections, both facilitated by, and impossible if not for, the internet!

Peace and love to you all!
