“I fear the day when technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.” —Albert Einstein In my study I have a giant poster of one of my heroes, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. One of his famous quotes is the following: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Today, I believe many people are being silenced having reached a breaking point. Because of distraction with electronic gadgets, a reluctance to stay engaged on unpopular issues, plus experiencing what seems like an avalanche of negative developments in our culture, many people are disconnecting or distancing themselves from news. They’re feeling disillusioned, discouraged and depressed.
I personally battle these very things. At times what’s happening in our nation seems overwhelming. Imagine if you’re ready to enroll at college in California and cultural confusion has brought us to the point where a student now checks a box answering the question, “What are you? 1. Male 2. Female 3. Transmale 4. Transwoman 5. Gender queer 6. Different identity.” Unbelievable! MORE
