The world has become loquacious. Communication is one thing, while overwhelming chattiness from way too many sources around us does no good. Internet combined with tv, radio, newspapers, magazines, books, electronic media, cities crowded with people who all express themselves and community cultures dawned upon each individual to the point that paralyzed most of us, for at least hours a day.

Children of all ages are ignored by parents overwhelmed by FOMO on some news or messages from too many sources.

Don’t look at me for solution. It’s too late for all of us.
To care is to admit vulnerability. The latter attracts attacks.
Between overexpression and invisibility may be hiding a golden spot of being awesome. Stop shouting your truth. It sinks in everyone elses’.
