The new appreciation for time spent with those we love poses a great spiritual question to materialistic yuppies and workaholic careerists, and that question is this: "Was your life before September 11 really working for you？" To many, the answer is no.
We once heard of a CEO who spoke at his retirement dinner to a group of your executives. He said, "I know you want my job, and I'll tell you how to get it. Last week my daughter was married, and as she walked down the aisle, I realized I did not know the name of her best friend, or the last book she read, or her favorite color. That's the price I paid for this job. If you want to pay that price, you can have it."
People are figuring out the price they have been paying for their lives, arid for many it's just too damn
We asked kids during December to name the very best gift they could receive. Their answer took our breath away. The overwhelming choice was "More time with my mom and dad."
Evil is always angry and hurtful. It always delights in the misery of others. This is the evil of terrorism. September 11 did not teach us anything new about evil.
What did become apparent is the stunning variety and scope of human goodness. Pick any story: the elderly woman who donated the money she had planned to spend on a hearing aid; the sacrifice of Father Mychal Judge, who died after giving last rites in the shower of dust and hones; the volunteers from everywhere who responded to the needs of strangers as if the call came from home. In thousands of stories we learn that the great human evil we witnessed was met by a wave of heroism and kindness that dwarfed it.
Such goodness puts evil Into perspective. We see how the healing power of human compassion far out- weighs the corrosive power of human evil. In the final summing up, it is the good in us that defines this moment in our co1lective history.
There is a lot of talk about spirituality nowadays. Often it means: "I am not part of any organized religion." We are telling people to give that old-time religion another good look. The clergy of our country have done a great thing for God and for America in the last months. In a thousand places of worship, they welcome and counsel and comfort the bereaved and the weary. We have to come home to faith.
There is a teaching in the Jewish faith that is also reflected in an African proverb: "Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable, but sticks alone can be broken by a child." We need to be bundled, and our bundles protect us best ff they are bigger than just our family and small circle of friends. We need a place to go that is not home or work, where we can be bundled together with other seekers in need of hope. The ways we find God are al- most always the same as the ways we find each other.

The Shoppers in the UK are spending less money on toilet paper to save money, research has shown. Penny-pinching UK consumers choose cheaper products from discounters such as Aldi and Lidl rather than luxury alternatives.
This has wiped 6% off the value of the soft tissue paper market in the UK. It has shrunk from ￡1.19 billion in 2011 to ￡1.12 billion in 2015,according to a new report from market research company Mintel. Furthermore, the future of the market looks far from rosy, with sales expected to fall further to ￡1.11 billion in 2016.
In the last year alone, despite an increase in the UK population and a subsequent rise in the number of households, sales of toilet paper fell by 2%, with the average household reducing their toilet roll spending from ￡43 in 2014 to ￡41 in 2015.
Overall, almost three in five people say they try to limit their usage of paper—including facial tissue and kitchen roll―to save money. “Strength，softness and thickness remain the leading indicators of toilet paper quality, with just a small proportion of consumers preferring more luxurious alternatives, such as those with flower patterns of perfume,said Mintel analyst Jack Duckett. &39;&39;These extra features are deemed unnecessary by the majority of shoppers, which probably reflects how these types of products are typically more expensive than regular toilet paper, even when on special offer.”
While consumers are spending less on toilet paper, they remain fussy―in theory at least—when it comes to paper quality. Top of Britons’ toilet paper wish list is softness (57%) followed by strength (45%) and thickness (36%).
One in 10 buyers rand toilet rolls made from recycled paper among their top considerations, highlighting how overall the environment is much less of a consideration for shoppers than product quality. In a challenge for manufacturers, 81% of paper product users said they would consider buying recycled toilet tissue if it were comparable in quality to standard paper.

A.Britons have cut their spending on it

What do we learn about Britons concerning toilet paper？A.They are particular about the quality of toilet paper
B.They emphasize the strength of toilet paper the most

Thank you for your offer of December the 5th and samples of Ground Nuts you kindly sent us.
While we are appreciating the good quality of your Ground Nuts, we regret that your price appears to be on the high side. To accept the price you quoted would leave us no profit in our sales, since the other suppliers are offering lower prices for Ground Nut of the same quality.
Therefore we suggest you reduce the quoted price by 10 percent, otherwise there is no possibility of business.
We look forward to your confirmation.
