Time with families is down. Way down. 28% down from a year ago—about the same period of time that FaceBook doubled its members from 100 million to 200 million.
I remember a broken TV with a sign stuck on the screen. The sign said:
The TV is broken. Please talk to one another.”
Now we have TV, FB, iPhones, and endless other digitalia to keep us from connecting face-to-face. It’s a miracle of sorts, this Global Village. But the real miracles and connections are more fleshy: Families, friends, meeting a stranger.
Still with me? Hmmm. Maybe you should unplug and go hug your mom, dad, sister, or brother.
Reach out an touch someone. For real.
