Is communication dead?

Communication.

Seems simple enough. It usually takes place face-to-face, over the phone, through correspondence, via text, etc… So why is it so difficult for people to communicate?

We are perfect by no means. No one is, but simply put people don’t understand the importance of communication anymore. The technological world has diminished the need for people to embrace what communication means. Of course you can fire off an e-mail and the other person will receive it, but will they read it? You can send a text and wait anxiously for a reply and you may never get one. Communication has become a one way road on what use to be a two lane highway. Can we do anything about this? Maybe we can and maybe we can’t…

I know that today, I am going to sit down and write a hand-written letter to a friend. Yes, old school way of doing things. Sometimes the surprise in the mail is the best type of communication starter there is.
