More connections than cohesion.
That pretty much summed up an observation made in a portion of a study of our distracted culture.
In the past, people often connected via PTA meetings and bowling clubs, card games and Rotary clubs. But for many people in today's society, those opportunities to know a person beyond a single electronically-made connection are gone.
I don't have any magic answers but we need to pause and consider just what has been lost.
We may have the sentence without the paragraph and the message without the person.
In short, we may be losing a lot.
