A Parable for 2019

We are rejecting the world’s stories. The princess is shot in kindergarten and we read about it on tiny handheld computers. A hashtag appears on twitter’s trending page and we retweet it to show solidarity, but mainly to feel good about ourselves. We focus our energy on scrolling through endless Facebook feeds to avoid boredom, though we’re left feeling unsatisfied and weary of the world. We’re more in love with the idea of constantly being connected than we are with consuming thoughtful content.
