Some families hold grudges forever! What you might not realize is that prejudice started a long time ago, and it has been passed down from one generation to the next. It's a never-ending cycle of hate and non-acceptance. If someone doesn't stop this vicious cycle, it will go on for all of eternity. Each family needs at least one member who is willing to step up to the plate and be the once who breaks this cycle of prejudice within your family's walls.

We see this prejudice in so many different ways. Most of the time we see it in the form of a blood relative's spouse. The spouse is rejected and not liked for many different reasons. Some of the reasons I have seen in the past are different religious beliefs, different upbringings, different nationality, different social class, and the list goes on and on. The spouse is then rejected from the family unit which usually indicates the blood relative will also be shunned from family affairs. How sad!

Maybe in the near future, some families will learn to recognize this learned behavior of prejudice that has been passed down from generation to generation. Maybe one day, people will learn to accept each other regardless of their differences. We are all one in God's eyes! We are the same! Be the one in your family who breaks down those walls and be the one who destroys that cycle of prejudice before it's passed down to yet another generation!
