We think about distance all the time in our lives. We think of it when we have to run up the street to the store, or plan a bigger shopping trip to a bigger store further away. We talk about how many miles it is from our home, to another home when we might want to visit. Or perhaps how far we travel to church on Sunday. Frequently we talk about distance in terms of time – of how long it will take to reach a location. But what we almost never think about until it’s devastating, is what is the cost of distance?
