Is ease of communication necessarily a good thing? Think about when you are forced to sit by someone who is a non-stop talker. Communication is a means to an end, and the end is more important than the means. In society today we have made the means too easy, and we glory in our technology as if the means were all-important.

One of my favorite memories of my father-in-law is when his father-in-law died. He was on the road selling at the time, and so Nana had to bear up by herself for a little while, which she did with remarkable composure. However, when Papaw got home, she met him on the walk in front of their home and dissolved into tears in his arms. It was a very touching moment.
