This rant surfaces in my brain every now and then, so today I thought I'd share:
The automobile: Modern convenience or Destroyer of Families?
I'm going with Destroyer of Families - here's why:
See, this lovely family is all sitting down to a wonderful dinner lovingly prepared by (I assume) Mom. Note everyone is clean and washed and there is nothing to distract from dinner conversation. Everyone shares their daily experiences and hopes for the future.
Enter the drive-through:
We don't even sit in the "restaurant" when we get the fast food - it's quicker to just drive through and eat it on your way to wherever it is you're going. I confess I am very guilty of this activity.
Modern times have given us wonderful inventions and a better lifestyle, but sometimes I wonder why we have to take the bad with the good.
