Surgeon General Biggest Concern is Isolation

In  an interview on Fox News on Tucker Carlson’s new show noted author Thomas L. Friedman when talking about his new book ” Thank You For Being Late” revealed something that came somewhat as a surprise. During his research he met with the United States Surgeon General to get his views. When asked the question about what his major health concern was Mr. Friedman was surprised by his response.  Mr. Friedman thought it would be the typical causes ( cancer etc). That is not the answer he received.  He was told that his biggest concern is how isolated the country has become from each other. With all of this modern technology people really have become more and more isolated. The surgeon general is right. We have become more and more isolated. How many of us truly know our neighbors?
