After we sat down, the first thing they did was pull out their cellphones in search of wifi. As I looked around the table, I was struck by how the times had changed. Instead, of coming to a cafe for conversation, it was now valued more for its ability to provide internet access, rather than its original purpose of providing food and drink. Technology surrounds us. From when we wake up in the morning and shut off our alarms to when we set them at night, we are constantly connected.

In an effort to co-exist, adult generations tend to relax or over adjust on morals, values, and ethics passed down from their parents. These are done passively with the intention to avoid hurt, to right a wrong, or to fix an injustice they feel was done in their childhood....
