It depends – if you have a bad family, domineering parents, unkind siblings, unhealthy competition, everyone trying to be the center of attention – then a person’s dislike for their family may make that person de-prioritize family. If you have great parents, great siblings, people who support you, financially and morally, then family is important. Similarly, if one is not very religious, religion also will not be important. And if one is living as a third class citizen in a country (eg Blacks in USA, Dalits in India, Hazara’s in Afghanistan etc, those communities have little to appreciate about their country, then country is also not important. This is different from person to person and depends on the circumstances of that person. Maybe because of the times — populism, jealousy, or even racism. (She does mix in off-the rack clothing.) More important, I think, Michelle appears to be an informal, approachable and caring person. I don’t think fashion is an important part of her identity, as it was for Jacqueline Kennedy and Nancy Reagan, who presented an elegant and aloof image. And, as you can see in tabloids, many like to follow the designer fashion of celebrities. Do they objecting to the huge salaries of celebrities and wealth of the top 1%? I do think wearing attractive, less expensive clothes would send a better message, but looking at the whole picture, her image is positive.
Your existence in this world is because of your family, but that doesn’t mean that one should overlook the wrong doings by their own family. Whether family comes first or ethics will also depend on different situations. If its a matter of life and death, one should think about their family first. We should try to be ethical and rational wherever possible but if being ethical will destroy/harm/traumatize our family then maybe we should give a thought about other options. Definitely family comes first. One should never overlook their family because they never expect anything in return. They are always there for you to help you out from the problems you have. But many a times it has been seen that marriage created huge problems in ones life. Parents love is the true love. They love you without expecting anything in return. Although not a member of the First Family, Beau Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, was deployed to Iraq when his father first took the office. Just like the First Family, the Second Family and relatives receive U.S. Secret Service protection. It’s hard enough to protect an individual in a civil environment, and it’s frankly, unrealistic to protect that person in a combat zone. To even make an attempt to do so creates a huge risk for agents and military personnel alike, and frankly, the best security in a situation like that are the systems already established: That being, those safety conditions that the armed forces already have developed for all service members.
