The family had a discussion with the hostess because the father is an amputee on crutches and cannot sit in an upper seating area, due to his disability.

English essay "The Pedestrian" is a short story, written by Ray Bradbury. The story is set in the near future, in the year 2053, and it tells the story of Leonard Mead, a man who walks alone at night on the sidewalk, simply for the pure pleasure of it. Communication has an important role in this story because while Mr. Mead is alone talking to himself, whispering to every house on every side as he is moving, his neighbours are carelessly spending their nighttime watching television. With the increasing use of modern technology (such as smartphones and computers), we can ask ourselves, how does today’s modern technology affect the way people socialize and communicate? First, I’ll be talking about the traditional forms of communication and how they are slowly disappearing because of today’s new ways to communicate, then I will be talking about how the traditional forms of communication are better and how they should not be forgotten, and I’ll finish with the negative influence modern technology has on our lives, such as creating barriers between people.
