Loyalty is a rare commodity these days.  People at one time were loyal to their families, their jobs, their cities or towns, and even their churches. Everything has changed.  People no longer even remain friends.  Life is short and I think loyalty is a quality we should all embrace.  Many families argue and walk away from each other.  One of the reasons I wrote, “Misplaced Trust,” was that I couldn’t believe how siblings treated each other particularly after the parents passed. The same individuals who spent holidays together, went on trips, played together when they were young were now at each other’s throats.  Yes, it was once again, ‘all about the money.’ It has been rare over the years that siblings did stand by each other and particularly the handicapped or disabled. There have been a few families who have honored their parents wishes and taken care of the members of their family that needed help. There is an episode in “The Brady Bunch,” in which one of the boys broke the mother’s vase.  His siblings gathered around to help him as he was going on his first boys camping trip the following week-end.  They worked together to glue the vase back, but the dad brought flowers home that day and of course, the glue did not hold and the water leaked.  Everyone secretly took blame so their brother could make the trip.  In the end, the parents obviously knew and his conscious won out and he finally admitted to the accident.  It was a well written story with a very positive concept. In many of the TV shows there are groups who do remain true to each other which is positive.  In the Good Gus series, all the characters were loyal and true which I thought was important to the young reader.
