Yes, yes. Obama had his birthday yesterday. But an even more important birthday occurred. My brother was born thirty-six years ago yesterday. I had a 16 hour shift and did not get a chance to call, and for that I am truly sorry. (I did have a diabetic wake up in the middle of a big store though, so I was actually busy!)
My brother has always been one of my best friends and one of my most trusted advisers. He has been burdened with things that would have broken lesser men, myself included, and somehow thrived through it all. He has a beautiful family and an unparalleled amount of knowledge and talent.
He's one of the few people I respect and admire, and though I am older in years, I am far behind in many, many ways.
Love you bro. So glad you were born.
