What is community? Community is defined in the dictionary as; a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. But I would argue that community is much more than a group of people hanging out together. Community is a feeling you receive when you're in fellowship with someone with a purpose. Community is more than just an idea it is an emotion. Community is what forms friend groups at school to national governments. Every human being on this earth has a purpose. Whether that is a career in the workplace or raising a family everyone is here for a reason. Human bodies aren't meant to do life alone. Our minds naturally want to be a part of something. This applies to all ages. For a high schooler, there are many different things we strive to be or be a part of.
