          What is family? Literally, it is the basic unit of the society. It makes our society what it is, however, family also has foundation which is the children and their parents.

          The word “family” is a very strong and for me and the definition above is very simple.For me, family is not only my parents and siblings. It may be my friends or other people not related by blood as long as i have my respect, trust and strong relationship with them. It could also be my pets. With family, we learn to trust. We feel secure and safe when they are around and in any problems or challenges that comes our way, family will be our savior. They will always be there for us, even in our darkest days. If we give our full trust, strong bond will bloom. “A family that stays together, wins together.” Nobody can bring down a family with a tough and invincible shield. Most importantly, the word that can best associate with the word “family” is love. After fulfilling the two, love will spread.

          Family is like a treasure more precious than gems and golds.
