A family is one of the most basic models of what a
better world can be like. And yet, like the world,
most families don't feel connected because they forget
or don't recognize the common goal they share that
unites them. The members of a family are joined by
bonds of love; they nurture and help each other meet
all of their physical and emotional needs. A family
that strives to become a better world family can help
each member to feel more fulfilled and better about
themselves and the world.
