This week I have run across a number of people who have been sick.  Sick and tired of coughing, colds, illness and general dis-ease. 

Now, I began to think.  What if we all got together?  What if we all shared one room?  What if in our togetherness we shared our common woes and common foes called germs and flus and little creatures with no names?

Surely the ideal of uniting this world together with one cause would be achieved.  We would now have the great opportunity of being equal with one another.  We would share the ideal of democracy and community.  We could all speak together with one voice . . .

If we could just stop coughing!
