“If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal. There are too many to list; you know who you are.”
And from a reply to that post:
“……….But you know, everyone can’t live right next to me. Kindred spirits are friends no matter where they live geographically. The internets are just another way to bring us together.”
Having met one of my closest (in real life) friends through the internet, and one or two really special people who are/were strictly internet friends, I can say that having the internet has made my life that much richer and more fun. It also lets me keep in touch with people I love in real life, but who don’t live close enough for day-to-day interaction. What do you think, readers? Has the internet enriched your life, or no?
