Over the weekend, I was reading part of this college textbook on sociology. Under a section on “family,” it noted — among a lot of things — that half the inmates in U.S. jails had a father, mother, brother or sister who served time. As a mental health counselor, I consistently saw how one’s upbringing tremendously influenced them, for the good, or for the bad. St. John Paul II said the family is the lynchpin of society. Part of our platform revolves around “healing the family” in America. Especially since right now, we are bobbing in a sea of dysfunction.
