Allow me take this opportunity to rant. Things I wish I could say that I, of course, won't say.
Who gives one person the right to tell another person that they should stay away from half of their family?? To tell them that that part of their family are bad influences and they shouldn't hang out with them? To tell one brother to stay away from another brother? To tell a nephew to stay away from his aunt and uncle? To tell a grandson to stay away from his grandmother? This is just very upsetting to me.
Okay, I think that's all . . . well okay, there could be a lot more, but I'll be nice.
(And yes, I'm one of the "bad" ones.)
