Book Review: "Philanthropy Heirs & Values"

"Philanthropy Heirs & Values" written by Roy Williams and Vic Preisser discusses how to help heirs learn money principles during their growing up years so that they can wisely handle their inheritance once parents have died. The book is geared towards more wealthy individuals, but I think the principles they talk about could be used by any family to learn sound money skills and the joy of philanthropy. Briefly, the authors discuss three general skills children need to learn: values, mission, and accountability. The authors further discuss how these three skills should be taught to children during five developmental periods of a childs life. The five developmental periods are: Age 5 – 10 Awakening Years, discovering one's personal influence. Age 11-15 Exploring Years, discovering self in the midst of change. Age 16-20 Developing Years, understanding accountability. Age 21-30 Applying Years, maximizing the value of contributions. Beyond 30 Mentoring Years, unifying the family through Philanthropy.

    First of all, the case was over-charged by the DA. Lacking a specific cause of death, 1st Degree Murder was too much of a srectth. Negligent manslaughter was the charge he should have gone with.Why? Because the behavior of Casey Anthony after her daughter’s death was counter-intuitive to a person’s behavior after the purely accidental of a child. The jury could have reasonably inferred that the child’s death was the result of something the defendant was going to great lengths to conceal. In a real accident situation,there would’ve been no duct tape; there would have been a 911 call; the remains wouldn’t have been dumped in a garbage bag just for starters.Imagine not revealing a child was missing for over a month.Howie-are you a parent? If not,you have no idea, although you frequently hold forth on issues that you have no expertise in.I see our jerk of a President didn’t get his way in Texas, trying to interfere in the legitimate exercise of justice at the state level by attempting to use international law to subvert our system. I guess he didn’t learn from his asinine attempt to try a case in the media resulting from the incident in Cambridge. Remember the buffoonish beer summit ?BTW the animal they executed in Texas admitted his guilt,so there was zero doubt. You display amazing compassion for the lowest form of human life. I guess the victims and their families are just so much excess baggage in your principled world.The Texas killer got a lot, lot more review than he deserved. His victim got raped and murdered. That must be of small consequence to such a high minded person as yourself. Why not go swap spit with your idol, Governor Gump of RI?
