It is there in the eyes of a face different from ours halfway around the globe, in the fingertips of an artisan’s handshake, in the irrepressible joy of a child at play,
the truth that more connects us than separates us, that we can communicate deeply without words, that we are of one family,
Perhaps travel, as John Ruskin said of art, has the twin purpose of making sense of pain and revealing the sources of beauty.
I believe that travel – good travel – can accomplish this.
