Welcome to Future and Family

“You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.”   – Frederick Buechner

What do you think about when you hear the word Family?

Family is the most important social relationship that human beings ever experience.
Family is one of the essential building blocks for civilization.

What’s happening with our families seems worth knowing if we are going to understand the future that awaits all of us.

There are dramatic changes taking place in American culture when it comes to what we mean by the word Family. We are redefining what it means to be a family. This has been taking place since the 1970’s. The cultural revolutions that began in the 1960’s began a series of changes in the way we think about family. What we experience today has been coming for forty years. While it may seem like a sudden shift, these changes we now experience have been coming for decades.

I hope you can find information on this blog to help you better understand what’s happening with the family so that as a student, citizen and family member you can make wise choices.
