A source of community? 

A piece of wisdom from Don Iannone, in a comment at gassho:

"... genuine community evolves from a space where people are encouraged and rewarded for appreciating themselves and others".

I value community; I value acknowledgement. But I'd never considered that there may be a causal link between them. The more I think about it, the more I think Don has a point. Acknowledgement strengthens connections, and strong connections build community.
