    Can we Auto-Correct Humanity? 

      
     

    Did you know the average person spends 4 years of his life looking down at his cell phone?

    Kind of ironic, ain’t it?

    How these touch-screens can make us lose touch.

    But it’s no wonder in a world filled with iMac’s, iPads and iPhones.So many “i”’s, so many selfies, not enough “us”‘s and “we”’s.

    See, technology, Has made us more selfish and separate than ever

    Cause while it claims to connect us, connection has gotten no better

    And let me express first

    Mr. Zuckerberg, not to be rude but you should re-classify Facebook to what it is:

    An anti-social network

    Cause while we may have big friend lists

    So many of us are friendless

    All alone

    Cause friendships are more broken than the screens on our very phones

    We sit at home on our computers measuring self-worth by numbers of followers and likes

    Ignoring those who actually love us

    It seems we’d rather write

    An angry post than talk to someone who might actually hug us

    Am I bugging? You tell me

    Cause I asked a friend the other day, “Let’s meet up face to face.”

    And said, “Alright. What time you wanna Skype?”

    I responded with omg, srs, and then a bunch of smh’s

    And realized what about me?

    Do I not have the patience to have conversation without abbreviation?

    This is the generation of media over stimulation

    Chats have been reduced to snaps

    The news is 140 characters

    Videos are 6 seconds at high speed

    And you wonder why ADD is on the rise faster than 4G LTE

    But, get a load of this

    Studies show the attention span of the average adult today

    Is one second lower than that of a gold fish

    So if, you’re one of the few people or aquatic animals that have yet to click off or close this video, congratulations
    Let me finish by saying you do have a choice, yes

    But this one my friends we cannot Auto-Correct – we must do it ourselves

    Take control or be controlled, Make a decision

    Me?

    No longer do I want to spoil a precious moment by recording it with a phone

    I’m just gonna keep them

    I don’t wanna take a picture of all my meals anymore – I ‘m just gonna eat them

    I don’t want the new app, the new software, or the new update

    And If I wanna post an old photo, who says I have to wait until Thursday

    I’m so tired of performing in the pageantry of vanity

    And conforming to this accepted form of digital insanity

    Call me crazy but, I imagine a world where we smile when we have low batteries

    Cause that will mean we’ll be one bar closer – to humanity
