She say: Family Ties

by Doc

Family is easy. When I say that I mean that it is easy to love your mother, father, sister, brother or those who are directly tied to you. But is that our only mission as good people? Do we have an obligation to reach out and touch others…Well my family did it….

When I say that I am in no way bragging on my family because honey dear we put “D” in dysfunctional but when we were at our lowest as a family because of my nephew being killed in  a car- jacking… we still reached out. We reached out to a little one… an innocent baby who was neglected and ignored by her biological mother but came to be loved by us…the people who had no biological ties to her. Now 7 years later she is an amazing kid full of surprises and talents.

I truly believe that we are all tied to each other in some way or another…whether it is the person on your job who gets on your last nerve every day…they are tied to your destiny to be strong and to overcome obstacles…. So we have to reach beyond those comfortable places where we often “hide” and forget that there are people who need to be tied and helped by exceptional  people just like you.
