Dictionary Definition of ‘Community’

‘’We are against boundaries, our community is open to everyone.‘’

‘’If everyone is inside your community, then your community cannot be distinguished from no community. Acknowledging the boundary between your community and the outside world helps you create something as opposed to nothing.’’
