#Italkwithmyneighbors

In response to  those who want to tear us apart let us weave more threads to our social fabric!

I talk with my neighbors

White or black,

Yellow or red,

Rich or poor,

Man or woman,

Old or young,

Beautiful or not,

Gay or straight,

Trans or bi,

Christian or Muslim, Bahai or Hindu, Buddhist or animist, agnostic or atheist,

Country mate or not,

Documented papers or not,

Sick or healthy,

Olympic champions or disabled,

I’ll talk with my neighbor  in my street or in my building, in the metro, in the train, in the plane or on a boat;

And our conversation will celebrate the victory of life over death.

Jean-Louis

Dear Ones of I Talk With My Neighbors,

We write from far-away California to offer a few dependable, time-tested principles and means of successful face-to-face engagement at the entry point to community-building.

A conversation on Skype or, better yet, Zoom might be useful, so we can hear your own ideas and hopes from your own lips.  To plan that, simply send e-mail to LTraubman@igc.org

Consider first watching our grassroots documentary, CROSSING LINES IN FRESNO, linking from http://traubman.igc.org/vidfresno.htm  

This is relevant to neighborhoods or cities.

We're 101% in support of your willingness to bring people together face to face, with a new quality of listening-to-learn while experiencing that "an enemy is one whose story we have not heard."

Should you wish in the beginning, we've also had successes facilitating intimate exchanges long-distance, as with http://traubman.igc.org/korea-japan.pdf and http://traubman.igc.org/singapore.pdf


Too, consider our 1991 newspaper article Old-fashioned Potlucks Lead to New Friendships -- http://traubman.igc.org/koinonia.htm

Then step-by-step guidelines for successful neighborhood bridge-building are at

Jewish-Palestinian Mealsharing Groups:  A Relationship Building Activity

http://traubman.igc.org/mealshar.htm

In support,           Libby and Len

Thanks for launching this, Jean-Louis! The Peterborough Dialogues initiative is just one example of how it's possible to hold space for neighbours/community members to connect in a meaningful way.

Quel est le gène qui "bugge" ainsi  ??Mais oui la vie doit vaincre la mort , même si la mort est l'aboutissement de toute vie !!

Sure, Communication will share our common humanity.
It is the silence that bottles our commonalities, and replaces it with evil.
Talking, sharing, builds on our millions of commonalities.
Ushering in peace, happiness and joy of Communities living together,
Bonded by the strongest human relationship,
And the thought that we are all a single human family!
