Of course, there are those who will say common sense isn't common, and lately I'd have to agree with them. It seems that as we become more and more technologically savvy, what we used to call 'Mother Wit' is in shorter and shorter supply.
Now, if that in fact is true, what could be the reason? I really don't know except that maybe as we spend more and more time with our machines and gadgets, we're losing some of our humanity. Perhaps some of what connects us to each other and the real world is being lost.
Clearly, this mother didn't intend to harm her child, or she and her husband would not have jumped into the enclosure to save him. But, what was she thinking? Again, maybe the abstract cocoon of the Internet, our tablets, and our cell phones is simply removing us from what is dangerous ,or safe or even removing us from what is real.
And if that is true, you have to wonder ... just where is all of this heading.
