Please Watch This Video; It's Extremely Eye Opening
In this spoken word film, writer and narrator Gary Turk talks about how technology has taken over our lives. On his YouTube channel he writes:
"'Look Up' is a lesson taught to us through a love story, in a world where we continue to find ways to make it easier for us to connect with one another, but always results in us spending more time alone. I don't want you to stop using social media or smartphones. It's about finding a balance. It's about making sure you are awake, alive and living life in the moment; instead of living life through a screen."
If you think about it- how much time do you waste on your phone instead of interacting with people? It will probably make you feel a little ashamed... I know it does me. We need to learn to be present before our lives pass us by.
