We Need Each Other
Quick! Name two addicting substances – maybe caffeine and crawfish flashed through your mind, but the biggest addiction is us! Somehow we’re also addicted to each other.

If you’re a non-believer you’ve no doubt heard of early civilizations where groups of people came together to form a community bond for self-protection, self-preservation and some kind of social life sitting around the campfires at night telling stories about great hunts.
