A family is the backbone of everyone and in fact we must do our best to sustain it.There is no single person who doesn’t have a family lest the person chooses to ignore it relevance for one or two reasons.This is why people say; “BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER.”

However, some families suck and so members don’t value their bloodline. I’m talking about all forms of misunderstanding,hatred,jealousy and so forth that lingers in some families.

The international day of families is celebrated in every 14th May of the year. Meaning it wasn’t a long time this year’s celebration went through. It is not a new thing. This celebration was proclaimed in 1994 as the International Year of Families by the United Nations.
