Response to DFW (Original post)

65. What a wonderful story. At 59yo with a wife I met in high school and 4 kids later It's scary to

look back and see how fast time passes. Itís also worrisome that the country we confidently had children in might not be the same country we experienced. I never thought I would worry for my kids futures concerning climate change, income inequality, healthcare, and democracy itself. We just assumed our kids would enjoy the same benefits we had. But I worry about my kids futures even though they are adults one being an orthopedic surgeon, a medical rep, a lawyer, and a nurse. None are married but I would caution all of them that when they do marry having 4 kids may not be a wise decision. Knowing what I know now, if I had to do it over I wouldnít have 4 kids. The country changed significantly since I started having kids durig the 90ís and not for the better. I hope as a country we can somehow regain the country I grew up in and felt good enough about to confidently bring 4 kids into the world. The next 3 years maybe the most critical in my lifetime. Everything is at stake.
