The items that our class collected for this collection of blue items tell a lot about our society. There are very few things on the table and in the collection that we actually need. There was one thing that was for learning and only a few for cleaning and cooking but the majority of the things we just little trinkets. Our society is so materialistic and that definitely shows. This bothers me in a way but at the same time that is the one thing about America that sticks out to me. We have excess. We have excess of everything; clothes, money, cars, food, electronics, and just random stuff that you would find at the dollar store that have no use. I think that that definitely sums up my generation as a whole.
