In American tradition especially, family is emphasized to a greater degree than in other cultures. Thanksgiving is a prime example of this.

It’s sad to say that the world and schools in particular have come to a point where competition is the definition of whether or not one gets into college. As unfair as this can sometimes be, the fact of the matter is that is how it works and at this point in time, there is little room for change. However,...
