Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

I am fascinated by generations.  Years come and go. But generations bind us together.

Yesterday, I was able to visit with my father. A young, 88-years-old, he is  obviously grandfather to my son Briggs. My Dad was born in 1935. Briggs in 2009. But they both have iPhones. They both love the Steelers.  But the time they span is amazing, My father was born before World War II started. Briggs was born almost eight years after 9/11.

And my father's grandfather? Dominic was born in 1878, in Mercanseco, Italy. That's 36 years before World War 1. And just 14 years after the end of the Civil War.

That' s amazing. Just five generations. Horse and buggies. To private companies that take people into space.

I can only imagine what will happen in the next five.

Now, on to this weekend's reading pile.
