My global village


Today I experienced the power of our global connected village.

My mom told me via SMS that my sister was in labor. My sister communicated, through a yahoo newsgroup, while in labor, with all of her cousins who are in the UK and the US and Greece to tell us that she was okay. Her mom then sent me some pictures via email. And then her brother, that’s me, in the US shared the first baby pictures with friends and family. Finally my aunt, my mom’s sister, used a skype chat from Guatemala to reach out to me to find out about her niece.

Although thousands of miles separated us, it felt like we were all in the waiting room talking to each other…

We live in an age of the miraculous.
