How Do You Depend On Others?

Events of the world show that we are more deeply connected than ever before. We all depend on each other. What happens halfway around the world can have medical, political, financial, or environmental impacts here.

With that in mind, it might be helpful to explore just how you rely on others. From family, to friends, to colleagues, to complete strangers, how does your life depend on the actions of someone else?

That also leads to the obvious corollary: that other people also rely on you. Your actions and beliefs can make a difference locally, nationally, and even globally. Have you considered the ways others depend on you?
