We live in a pretty amazing world. Right now, I have on my desk several devices with which I can communicate with people nearly anywhere on the globe. I use one of those devices every day for several hours at a time, both for communication with others and to create things. The money I earn doing that is automatically put into my checking account, and I can spend it on groceries with a little plastic card that I carry in my wallet. I can even order food online and have it delivered directly to my house, for a very modest charge, that is nearly always a better choice (price-wise, not nutrition-wise) than driving down the street to get the food (at least for pizza, grocery delivery isn’t quite here yet, but will be). I could, right now (well, if I had renewed my passport) be in India, Iceland, or Argentina within a day. In short, we live in truly amazing times and are capable of things our ancestors would have never dreamed of.
