4. Yes, we live in a consumer economy, so ...

we have to buy some stuff. The American economy is 70% people buying things. And some things are wonderful at their time and in their place. But what makes our lives worth living is likely to have nothing to do with things we've bought, but with people we've pleased, or helped, or owe a debt to. At the end, those are the things we'll remember.

Happy Thanksgiving to you!
