Definition: pertaining to or characteristic of family bonds; a unit of mutual and intimate support

Consideration: The family is the basic unit of society, then comes the clan, race, state, nation, world, and universe. Once we all recognize our kin, we will have a chance for world peace.


So much of what is best in us is bound up in our love of family, that it remains the measure of our stability because it measures our sense of loyalty.

— Haniel Long (1888-1956) American Poet
