…No wonder we feel disconnected from God: we are rarely able to give Him our full attention in solitude and silence. Thoughtful reflection is constantly sabotaged by the intrusion of cell phones, pagers and e-mail messages. No wonder our human relationships are so unsatisfying as they get reduced to snippets of interrupted, disembodied phone conversation. What feels like convenience is actually robbing us of those things we value most. We are left with bits and pieces of everything rather than experiencing the full substance of anything.”

Since falling while running around his “C”-shaped desk and breaking his wrist, he’s advocated “wrist awareness” by selling “WristStrong” bracelets. All proceeds go to the Yellow Ribbon Fund to assist injured service members and their families.
When asked how long he plans to keep wearing the band and stick with the joke, Colbert turned more serious than at any other point in our conversation. He replied firmly, “Not until the war is over.”
