The essence of a community is not the particular set of individual people in the community---for they are constantly changing. The essence of each person and of each community has to do with the personal integrity and the communal integrity associated with each---with that which is central to their coherence, wholeness, health, being and presence. For people and their communities to preserve and protect their essence they need to recognize and respect their unique integrities---what is central to their being their unique whole selves. Then they need to work to preserve both their personal and communal integrities; for they go together in life and in death. When personal integrity decays so also does communal integrity decay. When communal integrity decays so also does personal integrity decay. One cannot be sacrificed in any way to augment the other. If one kind of integrity is sacrificed in an effort to augment the other kind of integrity both kinds of integrity suffer due to the lack of integrity in the effort. When personal and communal integrity are ignored while engaged in efforts to achieve certain goals---there is a great probability that personal and communal integrity will be sacrificed; and that the achievement of the certain goals will not come to be; or will not be enjoyed even if it comes to be.
