I believe that family should be put first before anything else in a person’s life. At every stage of someone’s life, whether it is birth or sickness, it is always an amazing thing to know that your family is with you. I believe that is also important that when conflict arises, it is necessary to resolve immediately because prolonging the conflict only causes commotion. Family will guide you through your life whether it be a happy or sad time. Family will be there for you every step of the way and it is important to return the love when it is given to you.
