The news can be daunting. It seems like it goes from bad to worse on a daily basis.
In the midst of all this I don’t think people have ever been as distracted or self involved. I’m amazed at the number of people I talk to on a daily basis that won’t look you in the eye, or look up from their phone long enough to answer a question.
The savages that I’ve associated with would call it a lack of “situational awareness”. If I leaned a bit more toward the “woo woo”, I would say those people weren’t “present”.
I suggest we all keep a weather eye, and look out for one another. That would be a good place to start.
