If my country is going to go down the tubes, at least I have a modern phone that I can use to chronicle it's decline.
It's going to be a long road ahead. After I graduated college I went canoeing with my college friends. I want to pass on the advice I got from a river guide (Jim Cantore also gave this advice for those caught in a flash flood on The Weather Channel).
When the canoe tips and you're in the rapids, ride on your back with your feet forward and use your body to navigate the waters.
While our technology has gotten better, our society and culture has gotten worse. At least I have this phone. Feet forward and ride on your back. We may be out of the canoe, but we can ride this out.
