家族 is the Japanese kanji for "family." Family is something that means a lot to me because it is such a beautiful thing. My family loves each other unconditionally and no matter what trials we face, we always stick together and support each other. I actually don't have a close of a relationship with my parents that probably a lot of other people do, but I know for a fact that in a time of need, my family will instantly come to my aid, and I will do the same for them. Being a part of a fraternity at Pacific has not only given me a new family to rely and support upon, but also a stronger understanding of what it means to me.
