There is the saying that "there are no two snowflakes alike", and that certainly applies to people, too. Every person is an individual with unique qualities that separate them from everyone else.

Throughout the story you hear about the different situations that the family members go through. I have to agree with the saying regarding the snowflakes but i would also include the fact that nobody goes through the same thing regardless of how close they are to one another.
