We are a disposable society. 

Does that mean that we sit idly by while we take out the old to make room for the new?

Do we accept evolution and change without ever questioning the purpose?

The only thing we will have left is our memories with photos and videos that document the past.  We will show them to our children and teach them how we used to be, how we used to live.

I hope we will be able to at least reminisce with a smile instead of tears because the destruction of our legacy.
