You hear an awful lot about 'The Power of Friendship' in cartoons, books, movies, etc. (I'm looking at you, Yu-Gi-Oh!), but you don't hear enough about 'The Power of Family', methinks. I have always unconsciously placed a lot of emphasis on family in my stories, probably due to my own family (with all of my wonderful cousins, aunts, uncles, and more distant relations!), and I hope I always will.
