On this international day of peace, my mind returns to the fact that the constructs of society fall away during moments of trial. I worked alongside five religious groups and every conceivable race while working disaster response. We bonded, became thick as thieves, a second family, helping everyone regardless of creed, race, religion. We transformed the lives of total strangers. We prayed, conversed, lugged and hugged without any of the usual contraptions of societal barrier. My wish for the world is that it were normal and every day for this to occur. I wish that it could be so without the cataclysmic acts of God having to occur first.
