Their line of sight is narrow
They can only think in one direction
They can never back up. They can not Re-chart. Re-tool.
They only talk to each other.
They only listen to each other.
They only listen on rare occasions, always keen to positions that match their stance.
They only know what they know.
At best, they ignore others. At worst, they berate them.
Life is simple but lonely when your a narrow.
Their channel used to run deep. in some cases.
But they stopped thinking, stopped questioning.
In other cases, they never thought deep. Beyond soap operas, talent shows, pop culture trivia. Their world is Americas Favorite Videos, Americas Got Talent, Access Hollywood.
They gossip at work and parties while innocents are killed by drive -byes, nations attack each other and the planet surges toward extinction. But they are up-to-date on the latest trends in pop culture be that shopping, music, dance and retail discounts.
They are the shallows. They don’t vote, they don’t support causes but they do plenty of talking on the phone, watching tv, binge watching, internet surfing.
The SHALLOWS bring to mind the phrase “rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Titanic”
My call to action…..Don’t be a NARROW. Don’t be a SHALLOW.
Get involved. Do something significant. To borrow the motto of the Air Force…Aim High
