Nothing serious just thinking aloud...
A moment ago I wondered what the big picture looks like...
How many millions of JWs, have shunned how many millions of friends and family members, for how many billion hours a year, for how many years?
How many parents are shunning their own children at the moment?
How many children are shunning their own parents at the moment?
How many siblings are shunning or being shunned?
I had up to 5 disfellowshipped aunts and uncles my entire JW life - from birth until leaving at age 44.
A number of these were shunned until death.
My own brother was shunned until his suicide.
My SIL was shunned on and off, and now again.
My mom's brother largely shunned our whole family for being JWs.
