iPhone Generation

While I was at the Apple Store, I overheard a conversation between a young girl (high school age) and what appeared to be her mother. The girl was in the process of getting an iPhone and said, "in my generation, if you don't have an iPhone, you don't have NOTHIN. I feel like part of society now."

She spoke with such excitement and confidence, as though it was the best day of her life, as though this was a coming of age type of thing. Better than a Sweet 16, better than a QuinceaƱera, better than a Bat Mitzvah. And she was dead serious. And I was so sad. Only think I could do was pray that she had things in her life that were more important that her phone, like love...and life.
