It was during the mid-1980s that a slogan found it’s way on to the bumpers and rear windows of hundreds of thousands of vehicles. The message called to us. It appealed to our desire for “stuff,” but was flawed wisdom.
“He who dies with the most toys wins!“
Reading something on Instagram this morning reminded me of those times.
No matter how big your house is, how recent your car is, how big your bank account is, our graves will be the same size. Stay Humble.
I had to chuckle because of back when those bumper stickers were popping up all over the place, the owner of the funeral home where I was working and I came up with an idea for a bumper sticker...”He who dies with the most toys. . . is still dead”.
