I make sure everyday I can lead the way for him!

My First Puerto Rico Boy Scout Camp Out with my Brother,
Ponce, PR Summer 1992
Being that today was my brother’s birthday I noticed that I would worry if Javier stops following me.
The main reason I worry if he does not follow me is because I sincerely care for him and love him. Throughout the years my brother has become a man who I admire for all the great things he does.
He has a great heart and is a very sacrificed father.
I have always tried my hardest to serve as an example for my brother to follow. On many occasions I might have failed him (nobody’s perfect) but overall I think I have done a fairly good job.
I remember when we where kids and he always looked up to me for everything. He would tell kids at the park how great I played basketball, football, baseball, and that I ran faster than most of them.
Reality was that my brother was blinded by love and he saw me as an action hero even though I was average at sports.
He was such a great follower that even when growing up in a rough neighborhood when we ran into trouble he would not think twice into stepping into harms way to make sure I was ok (even though he was a lot younger than me). He became fearless and his primary motivation was to protect his older brother.
