Family matters

Readers of the Sentinel recognize the title of this editorial as the heading for one of the continuing features in this magazine. Obviously it has a dual meaning. We talk about matters that are part of family life, and we're also affirming that families do matter tremendously.

Of course there are many kinds of families. Most basic, we care about our parents and children, brothers and sisters, grandmothers and grandfathers, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews. It's a long list. There are also people that we come to love and trust so much that even though there is no blood relationship, they too become family.
