Look Up: A Spoken Word Film: “This Media We Call Social Is Anything But”

Editor’s Note: Thanks to the information age, we have iPads, laptops, cell phones and video games providing us with endless amounts of information and stimulation. Even though information is at our fingertips, it has caused us to become a disconnected nation addicted to a simulated reality. No longer is our social fabric in tact. Instead, our communities are suffering, and because of the heightened exposure of media devices our children are losing crucial motor development skills. Worst of all, they are becoming emotionally detached and numb. There is a rising number of website trolling where people sling insults and mockery without any feelings of regret or guilt for the pain inflicted. No longer are we forging personal relationships, rather we avoid groups altogether.

Watch the following video… and then turn off your internet device and walk away.

So look up from your phone, shut down those displays

We have a finite existence, a set number of days

Don’t waste your life getting caught in the net

As when the end comes nothing’s worse than regret

Look up from your phone

Shut down your display

Stop watching this video

And live life the real way
