Definition: Families are the foundation of societymuch like the bricks that form a brick wall. If the bricks are cracked and crumbly, no matter how well the wall is constructed, maintained, or mortared, the wall will eventually fall down. If the bricks (families) are well built and sturdy, then the wall (society) will stand strong and endure. If the family is so important, what is its role or purpose in our society?
