I don’t usually share these kinds of things, but family is often a topic here at LfaSB. Family, especially siblings, are some of the most important bonds we share as human beings. Jeffrey Kluger talks about siblings, beginning from a young age to the late stages in adult life, and the bonds we share with not only ourselves but our parents. Our siblings are referred to as our “traveling companions” and in his studies he finds that we will create a conversation with our siblings that will last a lifetime.
