Lost Family Unity

Tue, 08/13/2013 - 20:27 -- RRM1234


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.
