Yesterday, I sat at a local park, people watching (six of the people I was watching were the kids who were with me...). 

I saw a ton of fishing poles. Young people spending the afternoon at the pond. Skateboards. Rollerblades. I saw kids running, laughing, playing. There were grown ups playing too, laughing at the group of boys with me, who were enjoying the extremely loud fart sounds that they could make on their wet arms.

There was no breakdown of society. I didn't see a single kid with an electronic device. Just a bunch of people enjoying a summer day.

Kids are still kids. They still know how to run and play and laugh.

I saw joy. You only have to look to see it.
