I wrote this as a response to This I Believe prompt.
Every greeting forms a connection. There is a smile that is a natural accompaniment to every hello. I don’t know where it wells from but hello feels good. Hello makes a happy house; hello makes a happy mouse (child); hello makes the neighbor lend a hand; hello takes away loneliness; hello makes a friend. Hello does a lot. It’s safe to say hello makes the world go ‘round.
I believe we should say hello at every opportunity. But you know hello creates an expectation of hello as well. It makes sense to say hello back in some way, shape, or form. Hello is a word of innocence. So, hello is scary because it opens a new world.
