His mind was a blur as he began rescue efforts. Once they found the flashlight, he examined the cockpit. A survival kit was tucked into the tail of the plane, and it contained a couple of thick blankets, some canned food, and water.

Can You Hear Me?

Can you hear me? Over the clatter and din of Facebook “Likes”. Can you tear yourself away from the Internet sites? The armchair experts, The trolls, The games, Is this your life, and who's to blame? The World as we know it, will never be the same. Can you hear me?
Can you see me? For hours a day, while you wile away, doing absolutely nil. Ignoring family and friends, your world in a lens. Addictive, like a pill. Past the selfies, and videos, the articles, and more. Their cry for attention; a silent roar. When social media becomes a chore, Can you see me?

Notifications from family and friends make Birthday pretenses deceiving. With the flick of the keys and the click of a mouse, it clearly has no meaning! The memes, the themes, the constant schemes, Attention seeking has become our dream, Our families forgotten or so it seems. Can you feel me?
