Some people join the military or the police force or become a firefighter because that's what their family did before them. Others learn to cook using recipes that have been handed down through the generations. There's also Hollywood nepotism, where the children of celebrities get all the impossible opportunities that hard- working actors would kill for. Nic Cage, Sophia Copola, Gwyneth Paltrow, Miley Cyrus... they all owe a debt of gratitude to their families for their status. And now there's Francis Weaver of Canby, Oregon. He was just charged with murder. 10 years ago, Francis' father was convicted of murder after he killed two young girls and burned them in the back yard. In the early 1980's, Francis' GRANDfather was convicted of killing a man... and then kidnapping, raping and killing that man's girlfriend. Oh, and Francis' father also raped a woman... who happened to be Francis' own girlfriend. Francis hasn't raped anyone (that we know of) but he's got the murder thing out of his system. Yikes. Whoever you are, family has a profound influence over who we are, so for better or for worse, we wanted to know: WHAT FAMILY TRADITION DO YOU CARRY ON?
Her mother never took them to the hospital, she'd just invite a friend over to help them set broken fingers, five stitches or set broken noses. She grew up paranoid that everything was dangerous
