An inspiring concept from China is our idea of Family.

Even if two people are unrelated, they are obliged to call the other as a family member. A boy meets an elderly man...they will address each other as "Grandfather" and "Grandson", even if they have just met, and do not really share that relationship.

This invariably brings a lot of people together. It instills a sense of being and love for others.
