I believe in strong family ties. Without family, none of us would even be here and I think that is the most important thing of all. When you’re feeling all alone, or scared, you can always count on your family to be there for you. I think seeing the entire family at least once a week is important; not only for the young ones, but for the older people as well. You never know when something bad could happen to a love one, and you never want to leave on a bad note, or wish that you would have spent more time with them when it’s too late. I believe that nothing bad can come from being too close to someone or something, and the most important thing in life is family.
