Look Up from your digital device

Look Up from your digital deviceWe interact via social media, which couldn’t be anything further from social. We “like” and we share, we comment and follow, but we have forgotten what social interaction is really like. We are constantly adding “friends” on Facebook but we have forgotten what it is like to truly be a friend to someone. The youth of today rely on social media and applications to communicate with each other, often in a very dangerous manner, they have forgotten how to run and play in the mud. They have forgotten that “LOL” is not just a social media phrase. So often we get caught up in the digital world, lost and disconnected from true emotions, relying on a sms to explain how we feel or the click of a button to accept someone’s invite. We are the connected generation yet we have never been more disconnected from each other. It is time to look up from your digital device.

The video “Look Up” was written, performed and directed by Gary Turk. This video holds amazing life lessons and encourages us to stop and look up from our digital devices because there is so much we could be missing out on in the real world. We challenge you to look up.
