     Ivan Illich, an exiled Russian in Mexico, would know what he is talking about.  He had to redefine "family" and "neighbor" in order to have a life in community instead of an exile of alienation.  Thank you for reminding me of one of my heros from my youth.  Indeed, Illich provoked new definitions, thinking and behvior in me, precisely, because he forced me to realize how connected I was to all of society and humanity, not just those who looked like me or lived/thought/assumed the same way.  Like Illich, my life and thinking expanded the more I met and befriended 'the other.'
