Viral Video: Poem "Look Up"

"Look Up" is a poem written and performed by British writer Gary Turk, which encourages people to do just that: look up. It is a reflection on how mobile devices - originally designed to connect people - are, in fact, disconnecting people.

    I agree with Gary, mobiles devices are illusions. We have become slaves to technology. It makes us believe that we are loved by a lot of people, but the reality is that we are socially isolating.
    We waste the free time we have in front of a screen instead of seizing the opportunities that life provides us every day.
    Everyone makes the difference in his own life, so we must change to improve and to inculcate to future generations how to spend and enjoy life.
