I was thinking about Big Brothers today. I saw both of mine this weekend, a rarity that has the potential of being more frequent now, but for years happened a handful of times in a calendar year. I thought about a young friend who is losing his big brother much, much too early. The sadness of that loss is overwhelming, especially since I can't imagine a day without my brothers.
I look at my boys and I hope with all my heart that 30 years from now they can say the same.
