This was a very interesting class because it explored a topic that I had never really thought of. I never thought of how our family having been drifting apart year by year. But I think that its happened so much already I never really saw it as a change. It was just my way life. I think this is what Joline was specking about. I never knew the connection she was specking of. But I also began to think that what she was speaking of may never return. She said that our connections on face book are replicating what she once had. But I don’t think we, as this generation, see it as that. I think that feeling of connection will never be the same. But is it good or bad?
