Thank you so much for your input and insight into how to use the abilities we have to our advantage and not let them dominate us. I too know of many,
but I think the problem is with people's laziness to allow the technology there to help to allow them to exsist in a less than meaningfull
I wish I was young again, my kids are my life and I wish them no harm (as any parent would), but they are not using their minds any longer. They are
nothing but a slave to trends and sales pitches. All dervived from someone with a bank account looking to fill it.
I, as an individual, have had enough of it. I don't need an iPad or PSP or even a calculator (unless I do
), I love preparing food on an open
fire and taking hikes in the woods because I can. The military has taught me to survive in unfortunate circumstances and so have my fatehr and
motehr. And mother nature. All have taught me lesson, and being born in 1974, I should have been part of the "Me Generation" or "Genreation X"
(more spiffy propoganda), rather than this. But as a great ATSer recently mentioned... People in the North East know it will snow. And you will
loose power. They expect it. People in Tornado Alley know it is a matter of time. And they live with it. I am shocked (having been in both areas
of the United States) that most people could NOT live without it for a lenth of a week. It is scary to me!
I have nothing but respect for you as a poster! This is not the first time you and I have been on the opposite side of the fence. And I respect and
look forward to your input always!
