The Bible insists that you love your neighbor, but have you ever even met your neighbor, let alone fell in love with them? My neighbor is a 70-year-old hoarder who calls me "Lisa" half the time. When she's not speaking to me in broken English and telling me terrifying things like, "The people upstairs have bed bugs" or " I saw a man on the fire escape last night trying to break into your apartment," she's picking through the trash in the front of the building.
