Disconnect

In this day and age, it is so easy for a person to disconnect from life.
All they need do is to not answer their phone, emails or such. And those concerned for said person oftentimes are left in the dark. We try desperately to reach out. Due to the fact that today’s society-at-large just doesn’t connect one-on-one with genuine friendship much anymore, it is easy to disappear. We don’t know our next door neighbor. We don’t drop in on a friend and knock on their door unannounced. We are connected via cyber, but the human contact disappears. Can we take the blame for someone escaping? Or can we honestly believe that we are their solution? Is it safer to hide behind our prayers, behind our cyber defenses, for fear of stepping on someone’s toes or crossing the line of concern? There really isn’t any easy question, or answers for that matter.
