Is our digital connection causing a disconnect with family, friends and love?

America is all abuzz. Kids pack the back of their hatchbacks and trek
it across the country to go to college. Young adults move to the big
city to get started with their new job. So many move again for
marriage, family, the business merger. In the midst of so much

friends? Then there is no better time than now to shoot off a
“thinking-of-you” email or a quick phone call. Heck, even a text is
