Part of being human and relating to each other not just as a people but as a society means embracing the concept of community. The Merriam-Webster dictionary specifically defines community as one of the following:
- A unified body of individuals with a shared locality, interest, policy, or history
- Society at large
- A joint ownership or participation
As a resident of the Boston area, I am part of that community. As a software engineer for my company, there is the community I have at work among my coworkers and associates. As a witch and a polytheist, there is the community I share among my grove, coven, other members of my faith and occult practices.
