Remember the Outdoors?
When I was little my friends and I would spend every waking moment playing out side. We would play jump rope for hours or play a wicked game of four square until we heard the dreaded sound of our parents calling us in saying that it's getting too late. I wanna know what happened to the kids of this generation. I personally can't remember the last time I saw kids playing outside or riding their bikes to friends houses. On a beautiful sunny day instead of hearing the sound of children's laughter in the neighborhood, all I is hear silence because their all locked away in their rooms emerged in their video games. Im not saying that all technology is bad, I would personally crumble without my iPhone. But there comes a point when your too attached to your technology. When you can't manage to put down the phones and the games to maybe go for a quick jog, your too attached. I was reading an article a couple weeks ago written by a physician and I came across something that left me completely and utterly appalled "right now, present day there are more overweight people than there are underweight people" That means that all the people all over places like Africa and the Philippines and any other country or city where they can't even find a scarce of food to eat, the rest of the world has managed to overeat. And I think a large part of why we are so overweight is because of all of the technology has corrupted us. I just think everything was so much similar back when we did have so much of it in our lives. I miss the days when instead of writing on our fancy smart boards we would write on the good old fashion chalk board. Or instead of sending a quick impersonal text that doesn't mean nearly as much, we would actually meet up in person to talk. I think a combination of all of this technology has ruined a huge amount of all of our face to face interactions. In my opinion we should be prioritizing our money and time on stuff we NEED not WANT. Life is full of opportunities and we can't waste a single moment lounging on the couch rapped up in a tv show.
