LOOK UP, LOOK AROUND
I was on my way home tonight. The red light came on and I glanced to the car next to mine. There were two people in it. Both were looking at the electronic devices. I assume their cell phones. Some thoughts came to mind.
Everywhere I see human beings looking down
Doesn’t matter what age, doesn’t matter which gender
It’s always a technology device looked at
Be it a belligerent child
Be it a bored adult.
Look up, look around
Life is passing by you.
Missing all experiences, missing all the beauty
Missing everyday miracles as they happen
Stuck in a technology cell …. that’s why it’s called a “cell” phone.

I’ve used this video before. It presents such a powerful message that I’d like to use if again tonight …. as a reminder. In case you missed it, here it is again.

A spoken word film for an online generation.
‘Look Up‘ is a lesson taught to us through a love story, in a world where we continue to find ways to make it easier for us to connect with one another, but always results in us spending more time alone.
I don’t want you to stop using social media or smartphones.
It’s about finding a balance. It’s about making sure you are awake, alive and living life in the moment; instead of living your life through a screen.
