My father worked from the day he turned 13, saving and working, he built a life for himself.
401k, multiple income properties, cash reserve ETC.
He lost it all in the housing collapse, due in part to illness, he lost his entire lives work to bankers who milked him dry of all he had, before
taking everything he owned.
He now gets to spend his retirement living with me and my Wife.
Its not a burden, he carried me for 18, I can carry him in his twilight years.
It aggravates me to no end that we live in a system that treated our Elders in such a manner, at some point, People have to matter more than profit.
My wife an I have learned from his lessons, we are leaner and meaner now, because of the example his life set for us.
Live communally, live simple, value what matters.
