I can not stress enough how important it is to meet people from different walks of life, to listen to them, and learn from them. Coming from a town of less than 4000 people, I can honestly say the single biggest factor in my life's progress, has been the fact that I have traveled the world and had my mind opened to new ideas and ways of life. You HAVE to get out and see how big the world is, and how truly small you are in the grand scheme of things. It keeps you humble, and appreciative of so many things we all take for granted. Love your neighbor.
