I can’t help but wonder… What’s happening to our society? Families too busy for each other, children watching some kind of technology, the expectation of “fast food” everywhere, lack of human emotional communication and on and on…
I’ve shut down! I’m overwhelmed by the influx of technical stimulation all around me and the lack of personal connection. People need people! Barbra Streisand sang that song back in the late 1960’s, which for some maybe considered too old fashioned! For me it was an exciting time in history… People, connection, growth, exploring the uniqueness of society… People reaching people through people NOT through technology!
As the sang says… “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world!” We need to re-teach our children to get OFF thier smart phones and emotionally interact with people!
Technology has turned into a snowball effect… 15 years ago when my children were able to instant message (IM) off the desktop computer at home. at least they were still stuck in the house with people around. Then came the laptop and IM began traveling a little further away from people depending of the WFI connection…. And now we communicate with a small smart phone, we pull from our pockets to let someone know how we feel and what’s going on!
I can’t help but wonder, what’s happened to our society and the ramifications technology will continue to have on all of us! Call me old fashion but I hate what I see happening to society, the family structure, our little children, the lack of respect from our teenagers and even how adults treat each other!
There is a old saying… “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” And today I say “Put your Apple away and talk with people today!”
Each one of us can Stop the madness around us! Here are some thoughts….
Pick up the phone and call someone instead of sending a Tex.
Leave your phone off the table when eating out.
Don’t allow children to take tablets everywhere they go.
Be a role model and don’t pick up the phone if you are with other people.
Be a person who needs people and connect with the human soul one on one in person!
Love and life is about true human connection, let’s stop the madness and all start to really reconnect! And remember “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world!”
Living life filled with love, awe and wonder!
