This past weekend, my brother talked my parents into getting us texting for our family plan. I was informed of this decision via text message where my brother told me that I could now text, whether I wanted to or not. Since then, I have been through many emotions which can be described using emoticons (I will spare you this).
Last week was prejudice week in Lent. During this week, I was prepared to discover my prejudices and begin to deal with them. I wasn't expecting to find that I was prejudiced against texting. But, I was.
I've had some time with texting now and I have to say that it has it's pros and cons, like anything. There is no need for fear or hatred of it. It is a tool, and I am using it, hopefully, to do good things and communicate with people that I care about. What more can be asked of technology?
