In light of this fact it is easy to see how the betrayal of the same persons that provide your happiness create massive ripples.

While Shakespeare's, Romeo and Juliet is one of the most iconic archetypes in history; people can agree that supporting character, Mercutio, was a definite favorite with his boisterous attitude and loyal heart, he quickly gained our love as the story went on.
