Happy birthday to my sister!! I hope it’s a great day.
I was talking to some David and some friends of ours the a while back and the topic of Amazon using drones in the future to deliver packages came up. Â I didn’t know about this until that conversation and honestly, I was horrified. Â I thought to myself –
“what item could be so imperative that you have it in 30 minutes that Amazon could deliver?”
I know there are things that would be convenient and nice to get delivered in 30 minutes, but as a necessity at that cost to society, I wasn’t sure. Â My family thinks that I need to be transported back to the 1950’s with this attitude I must admit.
That brought me to the topic of how our society practically demands everything be in their hands so quickly and how we don’t really have patience anymore. Â There is really nothing we have to be patient for anymore due to the invention of plastic surgery, credit cards, smart phones and now delivery services like this.
I don’t necessarily think this is a positive effect on our society. Â I want Aiden to grow up thinking that he has to save money to buy things that he can’t afford and not just use a credit card. Â I want him to work hard to build the physique he wants the old fashioned way of eating healthy and working out – not with fake supplements or body enhancing surgeries. Â I want him to learn that not everything can be granted to him like a wish in the fairy tale – the truly great things in life are worth waiting for.

Am I weird for thinking this way?
Do you think that drones delivering packages are a good thing?Â Maybe I’m the one that’s wrong!
