What does it mean to be a neighbor?

 Washington County, Wisconsin, is a Republican stronghold. There were only two Biden signs displayed, and one belonged to Tim Chase. Within a few days it was stolen. But a few days later, Tim received an unexpected gift from his Republican neighbor, Josh Schoemann. Josh lives a few doors down from Tim and had a Trump sign on his lawn.

Seeing that his neighbor's sign had been stolen didn't bring him any joy. He thought, "that's just not right. We're Trump supporters but we love our neighbors and want them to have freedom of speech like everybody else." So Josh took his son and walked down to Tim's house, bringing a Biden sign to replace the stolen one. It was the first time the pair had ever met. Tim was amazed by the kind gesture. He told Josh he would do the same for him.
