This is the truth of life and communication as a whole. This is why we, humans, connect to animals, why we connect to Earth, and why we connect to each other. We all just want to live, live the best we can can, and be happy.
We speak different languages, come from different places, grow up in different cultures, travel to different places, and somehow can connect to one another. How? Because people who connect live with open minds, open hearts, and unconditional love. When you have these things, no difference in the world can keep you from connecting with someone or something.
