The Nothingness of Wealth

How often do we downplay the role of our loved ones? In this harsh economic climate, where basic survival needs are called into question, kinship becomes even more important.

Some people have gone from millionaires to paupers in a night. Others have been left with mounting debts. But the worst consequence has been the lack of support from family and friends in this time of need. Many of these people have spent their lives chasing the dollar, only to lose their loved ones in the process. And when the dollar goes flat, they have nothing. Nothing left. They are even poorer than the beggars on the streets who have families to go back to.

So why spend your lives chasing nothingness?
