Technology, journalism, social media and social responsibility
SO we should be celebrating a new beginning.
The big question is, beginning of what? What is this new age about?
Or perhaps more appropriately, what would we like it to be about?
This is an exciting time, a chance to redefine many things…and not just on a small scale, but globally.
How would you like to see the world change, and what improvements would you wish?
Just as important, what are you willing to do or say to contribute to these improvements?
Or is that even our place? Are we perhaps just caretakers, on the cusp of a new time that will be created and directed by a generation far into the future. If that’s the case, perhaps this is a time to lend words of encouragement and hope.
I, for one, would like to believe that our descendents will live in greater harmony with the earth, relax more, avoid being driven to produce merely for the sake of producing.
I wish they may find happiness in their arts, inspiration in their spirituality – whatever it may be – and friendship in everyone they meet.
Above all, I wish for peace in their world, not just among people, but with the Earth itself. Perhaps they, unlike us, will accept full guardianship of the planet, will do their very best to honor its natural processes and give way to the forces of nature.
My parting hope is that we see fit to provide those future guardians with as much honest information, encouragement and love, as we can.
Truly, this is an awesome moment.
