Culture. Community. Connections. Constants.
These 4 C’s affect every individual in ways we do not consciously realize, nor easily accept in America. Because we are founded on freedom, each of us tends to think of the self as a separate entity. But really, we’re all linked — even our personal health thrives on the 4 C’s, or suffers for lack of them.

Medical evidence about this is quite compelling.
That last one is so true, John.
