There's no question in my mind that one of the major breakdowns in our society (and possibly leading to depression) is family members moving far away from each other chasing after the almighty dollar.

As hard as my last few years have been taking care of my parents, I can't imagine it any other way, and would have some serious guilt/regret if I weren't here for them.
