The Attention Wars 1

Almost everyone is incredibly hungry for attention. I've come to realize, since I've been looking at it, that we live in a war zone, with people basically mugging each other for attention all day long.

Good point Fred! And I believe that a lot of this "mugging" is caused by a sense of loneliness. According to an article in the Huffington Post, the happiest people, among other things, are the ones who have a strong social network. Where a person has plenty of time to connect with others. I see this in my work with the elderly, the people that seem to be the happiest are the ones who are more involved with activities inside and/or outside the community.
