"With as much as I appreciate the internet for all that it has done to make life easier; I still remember a much more simple era, when you had time for other things than twitter or Facebook. A time when conversations weren't held via typing, texting or "chat". A time when we valued simple things. A time when it was fun just to take some cans and buckets and make music, a time when we played football on the neighborhood streets, and didn't have to smoke a blunt first. A time when T.V. did not have first priority in out lives. A time when cell phones didn't exist, so it forced you to value the chance you had to talk to a loved one. A time when problems were not so easily broadcasted or exploited on the media. I remember a much more simple time. And to be really honest..
It was nice."
This was my post on Facebook this morning. And I know a lot of the readers are too young to remember that time. I do. And it was nice. The point I am making is that, in spite of times changing, we need to never forget who to enjoy the more important things like talking to each other, showing care for each other, spending quality time with loved ones (not just in front of PS3 or HDTV). We need to value each other.
