Roth IRA: Major money move for young people

If you are young and if you think taxes are going to rise during your working life (and who doesn't?), then investing now in a Roth IRA is a major money move that will pay off big at retirement.

You can contribute any amount to a Roth IRA, up to $6,000 per year. For those aged 50 and over, it is $7,000.

These contributions must be made from earnings from employment. The money represents money you have already paid taxes on. So there is no tax deduction for contributions.

But the beauty is that earnings in your Roth grow tax-free and qualified distributions are also tax-free. In other words, you might be paying a lower tax today on your money than you would pay on the money 30 years from now.

An example from Kiplinger Personal Finance: A 25-year-old contributes $5,000 each year until retirement at age 67. Assuming the account earns 8 percent, the total available would be $1.6 million. All withdrawals would be totally tax-free.
The first 'Thanksgiving'

After the dark days of 1620, the Pilgrim's 1621 harvest festival was their first celebration of plenty. It has become a model for present day Thanksgiving feasts. Their festival is described in a letter by Edward Winslow to friends in England:

"Our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a special manner rejoice together after we had gathered the fruit of our labors. They four in one day killed as much fowl as, with a little help beside, served the company almost a week. At which time, amongst other recreations, we exercised our arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and among them rest their greatest King Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted, and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought to the plantation and bestowed on our governor, and upon the captain and others. And although it be not always so plentiful as it was this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want that we often wish you partakers of our plenty."

Give thanks for the rocks this Thanksgiving

This is a year when we might feel as if we are standing in sinking sand. We hardly need to chronicle the many and varied hardships of 2020.

We can leave this to the memes--it has been a great year for those.

Most of us can be thankful for our responses to the numerous challenges of 2020. We can't go to the gym, but there are fitness apps. Maybe we couldn't go to the office, but many could telecommute. The people who struggled most, we helped through donations and charity. Those who succumbed to the scourge of the pandemic, we have mourned and tried to give comfort to the families.

We've done what we always do: Struggle, adapt and keep moving. For that effort alone, we have reason to be thankful.

Thanksgiving isn't a holiday when we give gifts, it's one where we think of the gifts received. Friendship, family, work--these are some of the rocks that have lifted us from the sinking sand. Let's be thankful for the rocks.
Dear Abby's 1999 Thanksgiving Prayer
O heavenly Father: We thank thee for food and remember the hungry. We thank thee for health and remember the sick. We thank thee for friends and remember the friendless. We thank thee for freedom and remember the enslaved. May these remembrances stir us to service That thy gifts to us may be used for others. Amen.
