    Read and ponder. [6/25]

    The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
    shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
    We spend more,
    but have less; we buy more, but enjoy less.
    We have bigger houses and
    smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.
    We have more degrees
    but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more
    problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

    We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
    drive too fast, get too angry,
    stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
    little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
    We have multiplied our
    possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and
    hate too often.

    We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to
    life not life to years.
    We've been all the way to the moon and back, but
    have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
    We conquered outer
    space but not inner space.

    We've done larger things, but not better things.
    We've cleaned up the air,
    but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.

    We write more, but learn less.
    We plan more, but accomplish less.

    We've learned to rush, but not to wait.
    We build more computers to hold
    more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less
    and less.

    These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small
    character, steep profits and shallow relationships.
    These are the days of
    two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.

    These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one
    night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer,
    to quiet, to kill.

    It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the
    A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time
    when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

    Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going
    to be around forever.
    Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to
    you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your

    Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to you because that is the only
    treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
    to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all
    mean it.
    A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep
    inside of you.
    Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday
    that person will not be there again.
    Give time to love, give time to speak
    and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
