David, I’ve asked my parents and grandparents about the level of stress these days, and they admit it’s skyrocketed. My mom now frets about my daughter going to the park willing a 1 minute walk of our house because of all the news, when studies show we’re safer. When I was a child, however, they’d tell me to play outside for hours and never wonder where I am. The constant connection has made us anxious, fearful, and in a new stage of life where we remain indoors instead of in the great outdoors. Thanks for reading!
