From an old retired Marine

Dear Editor:

Here are some thoughts from an old retired U.S. Marine.

Happiness is not about getting what you want. It’s about enjoying all you have.

“Don’t waste time, time is the final currency man, not money, not power, it’s time,” David Crosby

I know being 20 years old in the ’70s was a lot more fun than being 70 years old in the 2020s.

I have learned that there are three things in life for certain – health, wealth and time.

When you’re young and in your teen years, you have time, good health but no wealth.

The next 30 years or so, you have health, are working on your wealth, but no time.

The last 20 or 30 years, you have time, wealth but not so good health.
