A few years ago, as an interested observer, I attended for the first time the annual ISN Jesuit Family Teach-In held in Washington, DC (Jesuit universities, colleges, high schools, parishes, etc.) dedicated to social justice education and advocacy, which is the heart of ISN's mission. There were 1200 attendees (mostly students) listening attentatively and respectfully to peers and well known speakers for a full day before lobbying on Capitol Hill, but the most telling feature to me was the lack of any cellphone use or texting -- total involvement and attention to the speakers and to what was being said! I thought, "If this is our future, I want to be part of it!"
