We learned about investing today. We talked about different rates of return and risks, from CDs to bonds to stocks. We learned that if a person invests $200 a month, starting at 20 years old and continuing throughout their working life, they will end up a millionaire!
We also talked about the deception of advertisements for alcohol, tobacco, and vaping. We learned that vaping is healthier than smoking, but still contains dangerous chemicals, including nicotine, formaldehyde, pesticides, and antifreeze! Vaping is better than smoking in the same way a bee sting is better than a wolf bite–both of them are harmful.
