    APPRECIATING LIFE !!!!!

    Dear all,

    Some food for thought....

    The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings,
    but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower points of view; we
    spend more money, but have less quality things to show for it; we buy
    more things, but enjoy them less.

    We have bigger houses but smaller families; more conveniences, but
    less time; we have more degrees, but less common sense; more
    knowledge, but impaired judgments; more experts and more medicine, but
    less wellness.

    We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk
    too much, love too seldom, and hate too easily and often. We've
    learned how to make a living, but not how to have a life; We've added
    years to life, but not life to years. We've been to the moon and back,
    but have trouble crossing the street to meet our new neighbor.

    We've conquered outer space, but can't come to terms with our own
    inner space; We've cleaned up the air, but have neglected and polluted
    our soul; We've split the atom, but can't break through our
    prejudices; We have higher incomes, but in the chase have sacrificed
    our morals; We've become long on quantity, but short on quality. We
    have sacrificed our community commitment and replaced it with our own
    shallowness of character and hidden agendas.

    These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare; more time
    for leisure pursuits, but less fun doing them; when we eat more kinds
    of food, but intake less nutrition.

    These are days of two families incomes with higher divorce rates; of
    the possession 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 letter to you, and a time when
    you can choose either to make a difference, or just send it to the
    recycle bin. YOU DECIDE.

    See you soon
    MOON

                        Very Well said .. in the pursuit of quality of living we have in essence sacrificed the quality of life .... Something to muse about ...
