My town hall meetings are with friends and neighbors, fellow Americans. We engage.
Detroit can’t come close to repairing the decades of neglect without addressing the crisis in our neighborhoods. I live in southwest Detroit near Woodmere Cemetery. My neighbors and I deal with the negative impacts of job loss, increased poverty, and pollution every day.
Growing up in the rural south, my family didn’t look like our neighbors, and we didn’t have much. There were times that were tough, but we had each other, and we had the opportunity to do anything, to be anything, as long as we were willing to work for it.
Greece is the only country in the Balkans that does not have territorial designs on its neighbors and wants to live in peace with them.

Be able to hiccup silently, or at least without alerting neighbors to your situation. The first hiccup is an exception.

It is much harder for economies to prosper if they cannot sell to, buy from, invest with, and even transit their neighbors. Landlocked countries with failed or failing neighbors can lose access to the world economy.
I’m not any more moral than my neighbors.
We’re looking to ways to build in the responsibility we have on climate change and the way that we approach, potentially, climate change refuges in the future amongst our neighbors.
Above all, this country is our own. Nobody has to get up in the morning and worry what his neighbors think of him. Being a Jew is no problem here.
Most visions of extraterrestrial life are actually steeped in human hubris. The fictional extraterrestrials of ‘Star Trek’ or a hundred other space operas are less alien than many of my neighbors. And funny, the ones running the place are mostly WASPish men.
People often ask me why I continue to speak out if it’s hurting my family. But that’s exactly why I speak out. The people Erdogan is targeting are my family, my friends, my neighbors, my classmates. I need to speak out, or my country will suffer in silence.

Fundamentally, if people don’t feel like their lives are valued and they don’t value their lives, they’re not going to value their neighbors’ lives.

Even when I was making the first ‘Paranormal Activity,’ I didn’t tell anyone I was making it, not my friends or neighbors or co-workers. I just kind of found that there was nothing to gain by announcing to the world that you’re doing something.

The economic importance of maintaining strong trade relations with our two closest neighbors cannot be overstated. Any decision negatively affecting the free flow of trade from Missouri to Canada and Mexico would have undesirable economic consequences. Thousands of jobs and billions of dollars are at stake.
We see and hear about Israelis and Palestinians only when they are defined by the global media as ‘occupiers,’ ‘terrorists,’ and ‘victims.’ But we forget that they are fathers and mothers and sons and daughters and neighbors and doctors and shop-owners and farmers and students.

From a population point of view, it’s actually very important that as few people as possible get the flu. People getting the flu is not a private matter. The risk for healthy people is really about your friends and neighbors and fellow travelers.
For as long as I can remember, our family has been huge Cardinals fans. My grandpa is a personal friend of Whitey Herzog’s; they were neighbors for decades. Our love and support of the Cardinals definitely runs deep.
Love, I find, is like singing. Everybody can do enough to satisfy themselves, though it may not impress the neighbors as being very much.
The central region of the Milky Way, known as the bulge, is stuffed with literally tens of billions of stars. And most of these are old – considerably older than our Sun or its neighbors – because this part of the galaxy formed first. Consequently, bulge stars are generally deficient in heavy elements.
We need better neighbors, neighbors that care about the schools in their neighborhood whether they have kids in them or not, because they know that the health and vitality of that neighborhood depends on it.
Most people repent their sins by thanking God they ain’t so wicked as their neighbors.

Hot Boyz always shouted out a lot of things relevant to Texas so I connected with it. They were our neighbors and growing up we went to Louisiana every year for Mardi Gras, Bayou Classic and the Essence festival, so we grew up taking trips to Lafayette and New Orleans. Those were three annual trips.
Prioritizing our children also means prioritizing their teachers. If Kentucky is to compete nationally – not to mention with our neighbors – we need to pay our teachers a living wage.
