Our “common heritage”. Never forget that you belong to an economy that allows wealthy people, enjoying first class freedoms, to invest in companies that repeatedly misuse our science, our tax dollars, our highway and healthcare systems, even our sunlight, water, plants, and soils while exploiting our labor, too, all of this only to help sweeten, for instance, a highly addictive drug and package it the into a small, stylish container, then give it a cool name like “Tyson 2.0 Heavy Weight 7000 Puff disposable vape pod system from Mike Tyson” to better guarantee their tobacco industry a new generation of young people dependent on useless products, smoking nicotine every day for the rest of their shortened, lung-crusted lives.

I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for your "letter to a young investor". Your insightful words have left a lasting impact on me, and I feel truly fortunate to have received such valuable advice. Your wisdom and experience shine through, and I am inspired by your success in the world of fundamental investing.

Your letter has provided me with guidance and encouragement, instilling within me a sense of confidence and motivation to embark on my quest to find a second analyst for our team. Your emphasis on patience, research, and long-term thinking has resonated deeply with me, and I am eager to apply these principles as I navigate the financial markets, as well as finding a suitable team member.

I am incredibly thankful for your generosity in sharing your knowledge and expertise. Your willingness to impart your wisdom to younger generations is commendable, and I am grateful to have been the recipient of your guidance.

Once again, please accept my heartfelt thanks for your letter. Your kindness and mentorship will undoubtedly shape my path and that of my team as investors, and I am excited to embrace the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Your words will serve as a constant source of inspiration as I strive to achieve my financial goals, which are at my age (68) not to lose hard earned money as a business operator and -owner.

Best wishes
