Good Essays
David Ogden, an American actor, once said, “Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.” This quote has meaning to me because it signifies the strong bond that lies between relatives. To me, this quote says that even when family is far away, family is always in the hearts and minds of relatives. The person in my family who is always on my mind and in my heart is my father.
