Celia Downey: Agrees with Carol Perkins on 'tuning out'
She's untethered now, from another upsetting distraction.
By Celia Downey
Hello Ed, being very much in agreement of Carol Perkins comments. I have seen many wonderful pictures and stories on social media, then out of nowhere comes a horrible and shocking story of child abuse, people getting injured, or animal abuse.
It is like being shocked with a defibrillator.
I do not want to see or experience these episodes, so I deleted Facebook.
Like Carol, I am sick of the negative and abusive information driving most news and mixed into social media.
I'm done with it, and good for you, Carol Perkins. - Celia Downey
Thanks, Celia Downey - Let us know, by and by (in 21 days) whether the abstinence is still working. We all need to do, to participate in the most meaningful ways. Can never forget the late Dr. Steve Aaron's abandonment of slavish obsession with "news" - broadcast, telecast, internet, even print media. "If something really important happens," he'd say, "somebody will tell me within 15 minutes." And as we in the media all have to remember, there are people who live perfectly productive lives without a computer, television, telephone, or subscription, and are quite happy, thank you very much. - EW
