Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines “community” as “the people who live in a particular place or region and usually are linked by some common interests.”No matter what the characteristics of a particular community – small or large, rural or urban – a common thread can be woven to make a particular place or region into a community. That common thread tends to be its members.
