A very solid and sobering message. Very well written. Nicely done.
I enjoyed this. I like your message. I also smiled at the jaunt down memory lane. I grew up as a country girl too and enjoyed reading of your experiences.

A really good, well written article that puts things into perspective and reminds us that the most important communication that goes on is the one we do without the 'gadgets'

Maybe picking up on the fact that skype allows you to see the other person might be a way of looking at how the new communication devices seek to mimic the 'old ways' (Just an idea)

To me, I could almost close my eyes and imagine what farm life was like, that's good writing.
As you showed very well, the social interaction of today comes up lacking, compared to social interaction years ago of family life.
