We went into Boston last night for a walk around the city. The Common was littered with people playing Pokemon Go. It was overwhelming at first to see. People everywhere, on their phones, moving spot to spot, like a scene from the Walking Dead. I can see how judgemental people could get pissed. Though, I think they are wrong. Or at the least they are missing an opportunity to see what really is going on. When I stepped back and looked, it is incredible. In a world where the media would convince us we are all separated and segregated, there were young, old, male, female, geeks, jocks, gay, straight, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, all joined in this game. Groups were walking up to each other and starting conversations. Asking for levels, info about gyms, being social and civil. I have never seen anything like it. Again, I could be a jerk and judge them all, but that would be more of a reflection on me, not them. You can call this game anything you want, these people were out and everywhere, having a great time. My son talked to a bunch of them, genuinely good people, none he would have met in another situation. We could learn a lot from this fad. It was just a whole bunch of people being themselves… happy and together.
