THROWAWAY SOCIETY

I tell you and you forget, I teach you and you remember, I involve you and you understand.

The Author

We live in a throwaway society.  People buy furniture and in a  year they are tired of it and go out and buy new.  Had a car for two years oh well its not new enough let’s get a new one.  My wife or husband I don’t like the way they act, so it’s time for a new one.

What happened to restoration?  If people just put a new look to their already owned stuff we could save a lot of money in America.  It used to be that a girl learned to sew at an early age and making clothes was so much cheaper.  Now it cost more to make your own clothes. Not to mention you can hardly find cloth anymore to buy.

There would be no need for buying overseas goods.  Think of the money that could be saved.

Grab a hold of this and think … it all stems from the root of ungratefulness.  I know I sound like a broken record, but check out the bible.  The first chapter of Romans shows how ungratefulness can lead to immoral behavior and then to a downfall of society.

Also there is a mentality of it’s too hard to make a relationship work.  It’s too hard to sew my own clothes.  People want instant gratification.  Then what happens?  The next gratification isn’t good enough so move on to the next.

Let’s take a look at the word restoration:

restore vb (tr)

1. to return (something, esp a work of art or building) to an original or former condition

2. to bring back to health, good spirits, etc.

3. to return (something lost, stolen, etc.) to its owner

4. to reintroduce or re-enforce to restore discipline

5. to reconstruct (an extinct animal, former landscape, etc.)

[from Old French, from Latin r?staur?re to rebuild, from re- + -staur?re, as in instaur?re to renew]

re·store tr.v. re·stored, re·stor·ing, re·stores

1. To bring back into existence or use; reestablish: restore law and order.

2. To bring back to an original condition: restore a building. 

3. To put (someone) back in a former position: restore the emperor to the throne.

4. To make restitution of; give back: restore the stolen funds.

Leonardo Da Vinci  LAST SUPPER it had a major over haul.  The candles over the years had given it a layer of soot that darkened it.  The new restoration made the WOW factor unbelievable.  People could hardly believe how bright and vibrant the colors became.

People can restore relationships, but it takes work.  Something this society doesn’t relish anymore.  I’d like to challenge people to begin to think about this, but Americans are too busy buying new things and having to over work to pay for them to give a NEW well OLD idea a chance.

People used to sit outside at their homes and get to know their neighbors.  They would cross the street sit out on their porches talk and play games.  Now they are inside resting from their jobs, they have to pay for their NEW things they feel they need.

What is it going to take AMERICA a crashing down of our country to wake us up???

    Thanks for some quality points there. I am kind of new to online , so I printed this off to put in my file, any better way to go about keeping track of it then printing?

    • You take your mouse hold down the left side. Go all the way down to end of article. It will turn blue all the way down.
      Then let go of your mouse.
      Next hold down the (ctrl) key & the letter c at the same time. Then pull up a word document from your programs.
      Microsoft Word. Next after you get the word document up, go to page & put the curser (which is this line flashing)
      into a place on the page then hit the (ctrl) key & the letter v at the same time. This will paste it on that page.
      Then you go to top of the Word document and hit the file tab a box will open that will ask you to do certain options.
      Choose File save as, it will then save it & it will be in your documents on your computer. I hope this helped.
