In our emerging global community, the digital age has propelled us, with ever-increasing velocity, towards a world that seems at once limitless and all-encompassing, yet infinitely smaller and more fragile than previously imagined. Events that a few decades ago may have aroused a nation’s compassion or concern—drought in Asia, nuclear power plants in Russia and Europe, political upheavals in Africa—now have a recognized potential to affect every world citizen, both physically and spiritually. Today, as we text and Twitter, blog and link in to Facebook, MySpace, Badoo, Bebo and dozens of other social networking websites, we create instant communications that span continents, cross cultural barriers and bridge political divides. We awaken consciousness and forge connections.
