I Don’t Care

In the wake of the recent event in Connecticut, I have had many feelings. As a parent, I am sorrowful for the loss of the children and my prayers go to those families for their loss. This time of the year is no time to lose anyone, especially children. As a citizen, I am sorrowful that this type of event occurred and my prayers go to the that community and our nation.

To clarify why I don’t care; this horrible event has brought out something that really matters, Love and concern. Yes we have to look for “the light” in any situation. What I have seen, is that there are several things that don’t matter and I don’t care about.

    • I don’t care about the letter behind or before your name
    • I don’t care about the emblem on your care
    • I don’t care about the label on your cloths
    • I don’t care about how much or how little you make

Some positive items that have come about from this situation is:

    • people just caring
    • people just helping
    • people just praying
    • people double checking areas are safe
    • people are caring for one another as people

When did we stop caring for each other as people, as human to human with love and concerns about just being people so we can live in harmony?  We need to return our focus to what is important, people loving each other so we can live in a great world.  We need to stop focusing on these insignificant issues that don’t help each other as people. We need to stop listening to W.I.I.F.M. – What’s In It For Me.

From this tragedy, we are seeing a shift in people thoguhts to be concerned for each other as human beings and helping people by listening, sharing a smile or giving someone a hug. These small acts are Action items and make a big impact.  Lets Love each other for being people. People with hopes, dreams, aspirations and love. We can grow as humans when we help one another in small ways and big ways.

Are Smart Phones Making us Stupider?

We see them all the time, on ads, in shows, in the community at accident scenes. The supposed Smart Phone.  But are these devices really making us smarter?

People are texting, reviewing e-mail, playing angry birds all while they walk, drive sit and ignore their kids or loved ones. The other night I was at the grocery store taking my groceries to my car in a cart that is not quite, and a man was on his “Smart phone” probably doing one of the previous mentioned items while walking. Now grocery carts that have things in them are usually pretty noisy. However, he kept walking directly at me as if not to hear me at all. I would go left and so would he etc. Then he finally looked up about three feet from me to notice he could move much easier than I could. Thank God he was only walking, but I have seen this from people in cars.  Is that Smart?  Is that convenient?  Is that necessary?

I have seen people ignoring their kids because they wanted to find out the latest score of a game or respond to a text. Sometimes HEARING and SEEING what went on in a child’s day is much more important than that small device you call “Smart”. We are loosing our relationships to interact because of these devices and the lack of discipline to put them down or away.

Why are we giving up our brain power to a supposed “Smart” device? We put phone numbers in these devices so we don’t have to use our brain and memory, we depend on a device for directions so we don’t have to use our brain to remember where to go and we put pictures of our kids and loved ones in our “smart” devices so we can remember what they look like since we never interact with them anymore.  thanks “Smart Device”.  Is this really Smart?
