    *line 4 "this trend [will begin]with nature..."

    By Matthew Zipple


    I would like to comment on the topic of the decrease of nature in American's lives. I feel that this is very bad news. It confirms the fact that Americans have tried to avoid for years. This feeling is that Americans are so absorbed in their great stuff that they do not leave their personal bubble of security to experience other things. This trend with nature and will undoubtedly move on to our interactions with other human beings. Americans will eventually have no reason to communicate with others, and will never experience the great pleasures of life.
