On the road upward to social transformation of humanity we speak of cooperation, unitedness (United Nations, United Religions, etc.), union (European Union), associations, commons, federalism, and a few other terms.
I am surprised that we do not use more often the natural word 'family'. I once asked an indigenous woman, "How would you govern the world as indigenous people?" She answered, "If you know how to run a family you know how to run the world." I have never forgotten that answer.
The United Nations offers a precedent by calling the UN and its 32 specialized agencies and world programs the United Nations family of agencies. Let us follow that example and use more often the word family: the family of all nations, the European family of nations, the American family of nations, the family of world religions, the family of universities, the family of philanthropists, of environmentalists, the family of peace lovers and activists, the world family of non-governmental organizations, etc.
It could have a beneficial, positive effect on a peaceful and better future of humanity on this planet.

Take a large city like New York or take the entire world. If in this immense mass of people one human being, held erect by the will to live, suddenly lets go, do you think that he will survive? No. The will to stay erect, the will to live and to be fully oneself is the single, most important force available to us.*

I'm in no hurry: the sun and the moon aren't, either.
Nobody goes faster than the legs they have.
If where I want to go is far away, I'm not there in an instant.
