This is Our Generation

It seems like nowadays people just cannot be separated from their mobile phones. I second to the development of the technology which allows us to communicate without borders. But there is a downside of this technology boom. We lack in our human interaction.

Albert Einstein was quoted saying, "I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots". I'm not sure of how far this is really from Albert Einstein but there is a truth in the statement.

Wherever you go, having coffee with friends, having dinner, on a date and even on the elevator, you can see people are much more interested to interact with their phones. What is happening to us? I admit I did it sometimes but I'm slowing down the habit myself.

I understand people needs to stay connected but can we just have a time to communicate verbally with our friends and family? People might disagree but I'm getting sick of this attitude. Let's start talking to each other, shall we?
