Technology has had so many effects on the way we relate...
This video had come via one of my mom's forwarded emails, and struck deep.
The story is a touching one.
One which can't help but speak to the human in us, reflecting back part of where we've gone wrong as a society in our relationship with technology - and correspondingly, with each other.
It's sad. But perhaps valuable to really consider.
It's not one we might all be able to put ourselves in, whether parents or not. But it's one that calls for greater awareness as a whole with our response to how we balance our relationships with technology and those closest to us.
(t'is a short, worthwhile view at only 3 minutes)
Children grow up fast. Loved ones leave our lives faster than we imagined.
When those we cherished are gone, will we look back with gratitude for all the quality time we spent together?
Or will we have regretted spending less time isolated in front of our screens, wishing we had invested more in those relationships?
There won't be a take-two.
Or, maybe there will be... starting now... 🙏
