Super strength requires another or others by your side

By Bernard J. Rabik

For starters, John Donne’s “No Man is an Island” got me thinking. Because it is about the connection between all of humanity. In essence, Donne argues that people need each other and are better together than individually, because each individual is part of the greater whole that is humanity itself.

The bestselling book “The Superpower Sisterhood” by Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush aptly captures what this column is trying to convey.

Emma has been lonely all her life, growing up in a neighborhood with no other children until the day two sets of sisters move to her street. The girls immediately form a club, but discover that something mysterious is going on. They have each always had special talents; but when they work together, it’s almost like their skills become superpowers. Now the sisterhood is ready to help their neighborhood prosper, as long as they can stop the ghostly Mrs. Wigglestooth from discovering their secret. Or maybe there’s a way these super sisters can help their nemesis too.
