Years ago, when speaker of the house Sam Rayburn heard he had terminal cancer, he shocked everyone when he announced he was going back to his small town in Bonham, Texas. People said to him: "They have the finest facilities in Washington, D. C. Why go back to that little town?"

Rayburn’s response speaks to the priceless importance of community. He said, "Because in Bonham, Texas, they know if you’re sick, and they care when you die."
