I know there are so many other more important things happening in the world. There are definitely more tragedies...than in my small corner of the world where the internet was down for almost 3 full days.
And, I do have lots of other things I can do when the internet goes down.
I feel a bit lost without the ability to
shop for look up stuff on the internet!
for me, the internet is kind of a "window" to the world. When the internet is down
...it's like a BIG "window" is closed.
It's quite interesting how much I take the internet for granted. I've thought many times that I could
go without a clothes dryer, a dishwasher, a microwave and quite a few other things before I would want to give up access to internet and my laptop. =)
What about you? How big of a roll does the internet play in your life? What are your thoughts, when the internet goes down either at home or at work?
As Martin Luther King day comes to a close, I've been reminded of how hurtful prejudice can be. I need to make even stronger efforts to be aware of prejudices in my own thinking. I like to think of this day as a day to remember how there are many diverse people in the world with many different religions and customs. They might think differently than me, I might not agree with the way they choose to live. But, I need to be careful not to think my way is the *better* way for all. =)
