Are You Human?

The innovation of technology and social media has impacted society in two ways, negatively and positively. Despite being so connected to other humans all around the world, we have never been less human than we are now. Living in a digitally linked world, the constant stream of news on television and social media is hindering humanity. Scrolling through protests, riots, violence, shootings and hate crimes, we become less and less affected. The excessive amount of exposure brings us to a point where it becomes surreal. This overexposure of violent news can be traumatic. We must understand the reality and not become desensitized by those situations.
