  • Family is like a tree; it can either grow or be cut short. Wouldn’t you rather have it grow and have it become stronger? You are probably wondering how can a family become stronger? Well, I think that’s a fairly easy question. And here’s the answer: be there for each other and support them in everything they do.
    Think about it. Trees give off oxygen and we need that to live. Family gives us the support and love that we need. Without these things how could we survive?
    Family means everything to me because they are my support system, the ones who love me, care for me, make me laugh when I’m down, give me advice, and most importantly help me grow as a person. I don’t know where I would be without my family. Sometimes it has it’s up and downs, but that’s life. We can only learn from our mistakes, and when we do, it will become evident that we are stronger.
    Family should be important to everyone and everyone should be able to experience what a family is like. Now I know you are probably wondering that’s wishful thinking and possibly thinking I’m naïve. But I know that some people don’t have a family or people that care for them. I know some people have to survive all on their own without a family by their side. I know some people probably don’t have a family like mine. Wouldn’t it be nice that everyone has a great family to help them in this world?
    Family is like a tree; it can either grow or be cut short. Wouldn’t you agree?
