Don’t touch.” Several years into life it’s, “Don’t run with scissors.” We then move on to “Don’t play on the freeway,” and as teens it’s, “Don’t fill your gray matter with drugs,” etc. - the list gets pretty long in dealings with that particular group!! As adults it’s more serious with relationships, jobs, finances, and ??? Yet another long list.

I’m just about positive most of you have heard of the Hatfield-McCoy feud! The conflict began way back in the 1800’s and lasted on and off for nearly 30 years, with 13 family members being killed along the way.
