The Unspoken Lessons of Advertisements

* to be unhappy with what we have
* "I am the center of the universe and I want what I want now"
* products can solve complex human problems, and meet our needs
* buying products is important
(Mary Pipher)

"These messages, over time, create both a  sense of entitlement, and a false reliance on purchases rather than people to satisfy and sustain us emotionally."

So very true and kind of "given knowledge" to our Lenten time especially; however, seeing it in print is a blessing and encouragement. Thank you! God bless you! -- Margie
