via Daily Prompt: Distant

Public Domain,

Nothing is far away anymore.

The first technology to shorten the distance between two points to the point where it hardly exists was probably the airplane.

Then radio communications began to make everything seem like it happened next door or on our own doorstep. Now, the internet brings any event home in seconds. Along with the report of what actually occurred, we also get instant (sometimes –actually often–unfiltered) commentary.

Tweet tweet. Nothing is distant from us anymore.
