Wow. What a great story. I’ve had a few similar experiences as well where I met a group of strangers and became very close over a short period. It reminds me that we are human and there are other people out there that I belong with. That I should connect with… and even if my geographical location keeps me from being next to them, at least I can still maintain contact online.
With the internet it’s so much easier to find your tribe. The connections and bonds you form are extremely important. Appreciate that person for who they are in that moment, unable to judge of their past.
Great article Raam.
