Social standards can often act as a barrier from deeper understanding of people. It's important to know when to stop trying to be polite and formal and start being honest and open. Perhaps we, as a society, could benefit from drawing that line a little sooner, amirite?
People who think terrorism in America is a "new problem" seem to forget that the American revolution was won using terrorist tactics, and that since 1850's (the Know Nothings) domestic groups have consistently committed acts of terror including bombings and arson by: KKK, Sovereign Citizens, Black Panthers, Weather Underground, Animal Liberation Front, Army of God, Earth Liberation Front, Symbionese Liberation Army, Jewish Defense League, Phineas Priesthood and about 100 other Wing-nut American groups. Current hyperfocus on jihadism is perpetuated by both wing-nuts and ditto-heads to hide their own agendas. With the exception of 9/11, terror committed in the US by non-citizens is practically non-existent. The US has dealt with white-supremacists, black revolutionist, religious radicals, environmental extremists, anarchists, right-wing radicals, left-wing radicals, and a host of other home-grown nutbags. It will never stop, and branding terrorism "Islamic" is just naive.
When you say family comes first you don't just mean the people related to you by blood you also mean that people who have been there for you for a long time in your life and who you know you can count on no matter what. Maybe that is blood relatives maybe not. At the end of the day though the people you should put first in your life are the ones who care for you and are there for you and maybe that is a blood relative or a very close friend but the point is the term "family" doesn't have to just mean blood relatives it is those who are there for you the most and who love you for you, amirite?
