We have been told that family is everything, and we have a special bond. However, what we must understand is that for our race to survive we must reproduce. Although, reproduction is necessary for survival, how we maintain our relationship with “family” is not a set behavior. History and our own experiences have shown us that family can be the best ally and/or greatest foe. Because one shares the same DNA as another doesn’t mean that they would make great allies. From parents to cousins, family members inflect pain towards one another. What will make a great ally is a person that one has a intellectual, moral and emotional bond with. Beware of those you trust, because of DNA alone!
