Kay's Commentary 2008-07-04

Download File The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling: This is a tribute to George Carlin, who passed away recently, a unique one-of-a-kind comic, who brought joy and laughter to many. He will be missed. All of his material he wrote himself, plus the wisdom-filled paradox of our time:The paradox of our time 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 less; we have bigger homes and smaller families; many conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, yet more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.We have learned how to make a living, but not a life. We have added years to life, not life to years. We have been all the way to the moon and back, but we have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space, but not inner space. We have done larger things, but not better things. We have cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We have conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We have learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.These are the times of fast food and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce, fancier houses, and broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw-away morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer to quiet to kill. A time when technology can bring this letter to you and a time when you can choose either to share this insight or to just hit Delete. Remember to say ?I love you? to your partner and loved ones, but most of all, mean it. A kiss and embrace will mend a hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moments, because sometime someday that person will not be there. Give time to love, give time to speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind. Always remember: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. Well said, George Carlin ? kudos to your soul. For KSCO and KOMY, this is Kay Zwerling. Copyright 2008
