That's my brother right there. He probably wishes he could have done the 8 years in prison for me. He has always been overprotective, in the way all younger brothers want their older brothers to be. That perfect balance of fatherly and homeboy. I credit a lot of my recent success to him. When people believe in you the way he believed in me, your likelihood to strive doubles and triples. He used to make these 5 hour rides to come see me high up in the New York state mountains. In the middle of nowhere. Nothing but racist sheriffs in the small county. Nonetheless he sacrificed over and over again to be there for me.
