subject line: brothers May 04, 2017 by Hannah Brencher tampa My brother decided today that he is going to join the military. My selfishness feels the desire to stop him in his tracks, lock him in his room, or anything to keep that from happening. He’s my best friend, my confidante, the only person in my family that tells me to do whatever will give me the happiest life for myself. The thought of having an empty space in all of those categories is not the least bit appealing. But just as he tells me that I can do whatever I set my mind to, I must let him do the same.
