You have "hit the nail on the head".You have said exactly what I have been thinking. People are communicating less and less with each other. Sadly people have adopted the role of TV commentators/journalists in their dealing with everyday people.They ask a question and before one finishes a sentence turn it around to present their own personal thoughts. My mother calls them "transmittors" There is a trend with North Americans to emulate the ratio, transmit only and no facility to talk back. The style of interupting and speaking too fast has really caught on. I question if people will ask the question"what is your story" but then not have the time or patience to listen. It is a beautiful thought and an opportunity to also hear some great original stories. Great work. Thanks Helen
