SLOW your life

I am so inspired by any organization that tries to wake Americans up to the fact that we spend far too many hours working to pay for the few hours we have left to actually live. The supposedly "8-hour" workday doesn't take into account the commute or the preparation involved just in getting ready for work. The truth is your actual life; which consists of going to the bank, doctor appointments, children's extracurricular activities, grocery shopping, home repairs, cable installation, sports, hobbies; all of this has to be adjusted around your work schedule.

Why doesn't this sound wrong to more people in this country?

The truly sad thing is that countries in Europe are now changing their lifestyles in order to compete with America.

So... So... Wrong

America needs to slow down, everyone else doesn't need to speed up!
