and our final culture topic of the week. Today is the national day of unplugging Portable technology truly altered our world, especially once it became small enough and powerful enough to bring the Internet with us everywhere we went as part of an effort to help younger generations beam or intentional in their use and adoption of such technologies, access often speaks to middle and high school students about how our devices have impacted our lives, both for better and worse. Some are skeptical or feel like we're attacking them. We're not, but the reaction is understandable, but most of them truly begin to get it. Yeah, when we get to the end and encourage them to intentionally choose regular times to turn their phones off in orderto interact with their immediate surroundings, they often look extremely discouraged. When we ask why. It's not because they refuse to unplug. It's because their parents will be angry if they can't get a hold of them. Some of them even say they see the need to unplug and reconnect as a family. But then the rest of the family won't get on board. We adults and parents can help change that one way to do so is to participate in the National Day of Unplugging Tonight, March 6th. Starting at sundown, people across the U. S. Will be for going there devices for 24 hours in order to connect with ourselves, our loved ones and our communities in real time, we highly encourage you, your families, your small groups, your churches, your schools or even your youth groups to participate. Knowing that so many other people will be doing the same thing at the same time could be really empowering and encouraging as well as be enough to break the rhythms we might feel powerless to change if you can't join in. So last minute, that's okay. Set aside your own day or event in the next few weeks.
