I was wondering how your family felt about what you have said. I respect your honesty and your feelings about having no choice in loving your family.. But that almost sounds as though you could grow to resent having to.
I choose to love people, as you pointed out I do not have any feelings of love for Bin Ladden... I choose to love those near me. I at times dislike things that they do but everyday is a new choice to look for in people the reflection of the love that I choose to share.
You are born with the ability to love. Everyday you make decisions about who you wish to share that love with.
God be with you always.
