A Positive Side To Social Media

I heard a story about the positive use of social media. My sister is using her ipad to teach the old people  where she works with,to use Facebook and Twitter, to connect with their children and grand-children. I love it, using technology and reaching out to our loved ones before its too late.  Kids have the internet on their mobile phones and tablets. Why not teach our seniors to keep pace with modern technology. Wait until she teaches them Skype, they will be so shocked to see their loved ones abroad!  Too often we forget about our family as they getting older and their challenging more demanding. I attended two funerals this week and the crowds were huge. I could not believe what young family and relatives they had. It made me think of an interview I once did with a hospice patient. “Love me when I am alive”, she said. “Visit me and spent time with me, time is love”- Indeed it is.
