    Preserving What's Good About Family

    I've been struggling for a long time with the concept of 'family'. When I was growing up, my mother and father took us to regularly visit various members of both sides of the family, we had family cook outs with cousins, Aunts and Uncles, we had family Christmas parties, etc. My...

    It is interesting that

    as a society we accept the concept and practice of a head of a corporation, political entity, societal group, or government, but it is generally rejected as a correct model for a family. With my husband as the head of household we have order. He and I discuss family issues and...

    Love and knowledge are the most important

    If a country is to be corruption free

    and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.

    Maybe I watched too much tv as a kid. But I have always had this impossible dream in my mind. Of a family that likes each other. Of a mother and a father and some kids. They laugh together, and the tough times only make them stronger. Because no matter what's going on, they care...

    Family doesn't mean same DNA.

    In fact for me my absolutely closest of family are some of my friends on here. They are here for me always when things are down. When they can when things are good. Never judging, They are they best one could ever ask for.
