Have family reunions. There is something magic about the common sense of a blood bond. It's not less magic for black, white, brown or polka dot. The reunion gives a sense that the family cares about itself and is proud of itself. And there is the assumption that you, the family member, are obligated to reflect this pride and, if possible, add to it.

This will be well received by ordinary Americans, and that would be better for us.

I grew up in a large communal apartment where most of the rooms were occupied by my family and relations and only a few by outsiders.

Within the family we provided one another with mutual support, just as we shared a love of literature and science.
