Well, in many ways this has been the worst downturn than anything in history and, the highest unemployment in history. The way I see it, if we as a group can financially survive this COVID -19 crash than we should be able to make it through most anything.
My biggest lesson is that greed, and how to balance your portfolio right to ensure you will get a modest gain and not always gleam for the highest.
-To note, I still plan to retire this year at age 60, no mater what!

P.S. Would love to see the after results as FireCalc factors this event in history :-)
