How important is a Life Insurance policy? Should I get one?
NOW! If you don’t have an insurance policy you should start shopping around for a policy today. Trust me. It’s worth it. Take a look at Go Fund Me. You will understand the need to have your own insurance policy.
Many slave masters knew the value of having a policy on their slaves (or property). They wanted to protect their investment.
I really did not realize the importance of having Life Insurance until three years ago. I couldn’t imagine the burden my family would have to bear of putting together arrangements for me, and I had the option of adding Life Insurance to my Car and Rental Insurance. I re-evaluated my priorities, and realized not investing in Life Insurance would be the “Wrong Answer!” **Dad’s Voice**
It’s similar to having car or renter’s insurance. We must protect what’s precious to us and on top of that driving without car insurance is against the law. Hmm. Car insurance is more important than life insurance. Think about that. It’s a choice. Will you be reckless or not?
Below you will find a Slave Policy from April of 1858, a policy for a slave named George in the amount of $1,000.
I know you’re probably thinking, “Gosh, R.J. talks about insurance a lot. Maybe she works for an insurance company.” Well, I used to work for a large health insurance company, and I was able to witness what happens when you don’t have insurance. You can go bankrupt without insurance, and fall into a deep depression trying to work yourself out of the hole. I don’t want that to happen to anyone that’s attached me.
On this Friday, I just want you to remember one thing. Invest in yourself today. We must protect all of our serious investments, those with and without a heartbeat!
