Note to younger generation: Save for your future

August 12, 2013 

Be smart and save!

I would like to respond to the letter by Shannon Brakstad, “Gen X is to Blame.”

While I agree with her fully, I feel that so many of us go around with our head in the sand and don’t want to know what is going on. It seems if it doesn’t affect their pocketbook, they just don’t care.

We senior citizens worry for the next generation but they won’t know until it hits them. We don’t want it to hit them. We wish they would “wake up” now and know that there is NO FREE LUNCH. Plan NOW for your retirement years.

Don’t spend ANY money foolishly.
