There’s no place like home, though sometimes it can feel very lonely. Hoo-nōs
Belongingness is both a sense of place and being with one’s own kind. One without the other is likely to give rise to some disenchantment. Having neither can give rise to some desperation. However, being in that place and with one’s own kind is a gradation, but the strongest of those gradations involves both freedom and safety.
Such sentiment has nothing to do with borders or segregation. It is with a sense of freedom and safety that one can traverse borders and mingle positively with diversity in all its wonder.
