A best friend is more important than family.
To me, this statement means that people would care more about a best friend than they would a family member. I do not agree with this. I don’t think a best friend is better than family because, you cant replace your mom or dad but you can replace friends. Friends may fade away or not be as close as you think, but with family hopefully that is not the case. I don’t mean it doesn’t matter if your best friend dies, but I would be more sad if my mom or dad died. One good example of this is in Divergent. Tris’ parents sacrificed them selfs for her, in the end, when all her best friend did was try to kill her.
