A LACK OF COMMUNICATION: WHY WE NEED TO TALK MORE

Two Women Sitting on Chairs Beside Window

“Face to face is still important.”


put your devices down

There is a problem in America today and that is we do not have face to face communication with our youth that will prepare them for the world ahead. These smart devices are making it tough for a generation to survive. Because when you step into the workforce you are going to be dealing with a lot of people face to face. So how do we get people, especially young people to place their devices to the side and make sure they are communicating face to face. Because without these key skills, you will have a very hard time succeeding in the world. And so much of who you are is predicated on what you do for a living. So where do we start to help people?

losing the ability to talk

A strong trait of mine is the ability to have an objective opinion. I also like listening and speaking to people that I philosophically disagree with, but just listening to them speak is something of importance. Recently Ellen DeGeneres was chastised by people who said she should not be speaking to former President Bush because he is of a different party. To me that is the most uneducated person or people who make those types of statements. In order to effectively communicate you have to be able to have a link of communication with those you disagree with. Especially someone like a leader of the country who you will depend upon to make decisions that will effect your life.

if the machine breaks down

Ever think what people would do if these social media platforms just started shutting down? Because you have people who solely depend on these platforms to express themselves. Now, it’s not the end of the world because we existed before it all. But it would like to see who is able to cope once it is gone. Because prior to the boom of social sites, people really only dealt with their inner circle and then they tuned out to the world. Now we have a constant cycle of news letting you know something. And the problem with this, is that it can lead to more problems than it solves. So you have to learn to disconnect at some point in order to cope in the world.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
