wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;
we spend more, but have less;
we buy more, but enjoy it less.
more conveniences, but less time;
we have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgment;

We've split the atom, but not our prejudice;
We've become long on quantity, but short on quality.

more kinds of food, but less nutrition.
These are days of two incomes, but more divorce;
of fancier houses, but broken homes.
a time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to make a difference, or to just ignore.
