Before the computer
Before the cell phone
Before the Internet
Before texting and email
There was face to face connection
Talking, visiting, laughing with a family member
Human to human contact and conversation
Time spent with one another, a hug, a kiss
Sometimes a good cry and a shoulder to cry on
Family unity is now a lost art in the world of technology
It's sad to see how many people have lost the desire to spend time with family
Sit and eat a meal together or watch a two hour movie
We should ask ourselves if family unity will ever return
If a birthday or Christmas Card will ever find its way to a mailbox again?
I would gladly give up technology for a family gathering every Sunday afternoon.
