So true…

 A Columbine High School student wrote:
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 it 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, but less solutions;  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 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 the new neighbor.  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 the times of tall men, and short character;  steep profits, and shallow relationships.  These are the times of 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.  

So very true…

    So true… the same sh*t in the whole world. It happens everywhere in Russia where I live. So sad… and it is also true that we can do nothing against it. 😦
