With the advent of the cell phone technology over the past few years, I have been observing how many people seem hooked on this piece of modern technology. I own a cell phone ( at times I wonder how did we manage without one). What I have noticed is that people including school children are so captivated by it that many times you see them with heads bowed oblivious to the traffic that is coming. Their fingers are always clicking away texting. I observe also that at church many seem not to be able to keep their hands off of it. You go to a restaurant and there it is. The phone is a good piece of technology, but I believe we should control the phone instead of the other way around. Perhaps it would be good if we can put it down for a while and engage in some good old time conversation.
