^ So true, get this, when in 2nd and 3rd grade, we used to be dismissed from school to walk home for lunch and then walk back to school for the afternoon, then back home, sometimes walked with friends, sometimes alone, all the kids did it, it was not far, but no one thought a thing about it. Bet that is not going on today! I don't totally hate the internet, but I think when it became destructive/too invasive, was with the advent of the smart phone, you now can be bombarded with pop culture/advertising ALL the time, and it is too much, too easy, people are tuned out to the actual world, living instead in the virtual, and that just can't be healthy.
