LIFE'S LITTLE PARADOX
From: Sharon Bonney
Southern Oregon

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints
We spend more, but have less
We buy more, but enjoy it less
We have bigger houses, but smaller families
We have more conveniences, but less time
We have more degrees, but less sense
We have more knowledge, but less judgement
We have more experts, but more problems
We have more medicine, but less wellness
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often
We've learned to make a living, not a life
We've added years to life, but not life to years
We've conquered outer space, but not inner space
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul
We've split the atom, but not our prejudice
We have higher incomes, but lower morals
We've become long on quantity, but short on quality
These are times of tall men, and short character
Steep profits and shallow relationships
World peace but domestic warfare
More leisure but less fun
More kinds of food but less nutrition
These are days of two incomes, but more divorce
Of fancier houses, but broken homes
It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stockroom
A time when technology can bring this writing to you
And a time when you can choose to either make a difference or just hit 'delete'...

May God Bless you all.
