  1. I think your article is pertinent, especially in times when youth would seemingly rather check a Facebook status or respond to a text message than read a book. As a writing consultant for a program at Northeastern, I see, in my students, and deal with, in their writing, the effects of not getting enough “downtime.” I understand the positive aspects of being able to quickly connect to information, educational or otherwise, but I suspect this sudden lose of quiet moments will be detrimental in the long run.
