The more that we connect to the outside world, the more we seem to disconnect from our own reality...
This is a picture of my 14 year old, facebooking with over 500 friends (60 or 70% of which she most likely doesn't even know) I've got half that amount, and myself don't "know" a large percentage of them, hardly any in fact...amazing and terrifying what the computer has done for kids these days. They get so caught up in the real and some imaginary drama of such a messed up society. What is real becomes deluded, and many lose sight of the THEIR life, and how it is affecting everyone who truly loves them. It just scares me seeing kids soooo caught up in the world so young...it's so foreign to me :/
On the flip-side, the computer has done AMAZING things for youth today. I am inspired daily by the creativity, wit and knowledge of a handful of kids I have been blessed to know for lots and lots of years...and by many, many more...a lot of whom are found here :)
