The Lost the Art of Communication

It seems like our phones have become an extension of ourselves. We don’t go anywhere without them. They wake us up, we check our messages, carry it with us to the bathroom while we get ready for the day. They accompany us to work, sometimes providing GPS or traffic updates so we arrive on time. They provide us with the ability to communicate with anyone through any method of social media. The world and all the people in it at our fingertips. Sounds great, right? Convenience is very important.
