There is a touching and beautiful video on YouTube, spoken by Gary Turk, that is absolutely worth seeing. Sadly a lot of truth lies in this video. But it helps to quickly understand the relevance of cultivating a look-up generation in between all the head-downers out there. .
“Put your hands behind your heads, step away from the phone.
You don’t need to stare at your menu or your contact list.
Just talk to one another, learn to coexist.”
“We’re surrounded by children, who since they were born, who watched us living like robots and think it’s the norm.

“Look up from your phone, shut down the display. Take in your surroundings, make the most of today.” ♥
