Family Ties, from Russ Sears

August 31, 2012 |

Last year I visited Spain, visiting a friend who came to the states for education and then went back. He has a job in the Ag Dept. What he said was that family and tradition run deep. He said it was rare for young people to even think of doing what he did, graduate studies abroad outside Europe.

My impression was that family was the safety net beyond the government. Besides the Gypsies and hostel tourists, there were few homeless people. Few drug addicts or winos on the streets. I asked and he said the families take care of them for the most part.

I suspect that those not in denial may think the government cannot be counted on but surely their families will hold together.
