Those two sentences left me thinking about reality and staying grounded longer than I had planned. His letter brought to mind a discussion my husband and I had regarding Facebook a few weeks ago. The conversation centered on being able to keep in touch with people who, without the internet, would be WAY off the radar screen.
My brother Aaron wrote a family letter day-before-yesterday, chronicling the goings-on of his week. It was informal, cheery and full of the stuff that makes up his life. In closing, he mentioned an article he had read in this month’s Ensign magazine; a Devotional Address entitled “Things As They Really Are” by Elder David A. Bednar. My brother’s final two sentences were: “We are living in a virtual world and people are losing their grip on reality. Stay grounded.”
