Electric tentacles
Tech has invaded every part of our lives. Whatever happened to those halcyon days before tech and computers in particular?

This is not to say that all things tech are bad, hardly. Modern technology has helped to streamline tasks that would have taken significant time in the past. In general, technology is great.

It stops being great when one allows it to overtake their lives. Just look at people who are glued to their smart phones and pads, not to mention their Xboxes and Playstations.

We have become so enamored with our gadgets that we forget about the world around us. Nature is forgotten. The beauty of a morning sunrise is ignored. The blue skies are also forgotten.

The trend has become that humanity overlooks the damage it has caused our Earth. The pollution. The toxic emissions. The destruction of forests in the name of progress. These actions will come back to bite humanity in the ass.

Let’s face it, the Earth existed thousands of years before the first humans and will most likely outlive us as well.

We need to start paying attention and caring again. Humans need to put aside their technological distractions and appreciate the natural beauty that is around them.

Staring into a television or computer screen will not do this. We need to get out there and experience it for ourselves. Let’s be that change to make our world a better place.
